“I saw my son with all the bandages, his eyes blocked, his fingers, his two arms and the back got some cutlass blows,” Clermont disclosed.

“The eye – he doesn’t have an eye – the eye is damaged,” the mother told the Times, adding that three of her son’s fingers were severed.

Clermont said she was informed that her son’s skull was fractured.

    Its really sad when families are left in distraught due to crime or otherwise and certain people makes comments like sad but true under those situations.I think its about time that sno put a mechanism in place whereby comments are screened because its really a turn off to read comments like that being expressed and by extension how does it reflect on our st Lucian citizenry as being civilized and being educated.SHAME SHAME SHAME

    The children will put tears in their mothers eyes. The more you talk to them, the more they do not listen. I think what parents should do is to make them pay their funeral and hospital bills in advance. this is pure nonsense. poor jab the lady.
