Brawl at Gros Islet – two injured

Two men were hospitalized after a brawl at Gros Islet, the Saint Lucia Fire Service has reported.

Acting Divisional Officer Jermaine William told the Times that at minutes to eleven O’ clock last night a call was received from the Police at the Gros Islet Fire Station.

“The nature of the call was a chopping which involved two males,” William disclosed.

He said the Fire Service responded with an ambulance and a fire unit.

“On arrival on the scene the officers encountered the two individuals still entangled in the brawl,” William recalled.

He explained that the two were separated and the more seriously injured of the two was treated.

According to the Fire Service official, the patient sustained lacerations to the head, a possible skull fracture and lacerations to the forearm and wrists.

William said the other individual involved in the brawl was removed from the immediate vicinity and treated, while the one with the more serious injuries was transported to Victoria Hospital.

He disclosed that the man had to be restrained because he was still in a ‘combative’ state.

“The other individual was transported by the police to the Gros Islet polyclinic and later transferred to Victoria Hospital,”  William said.

      When it happens to you or a family member remember your words. And when the economy crumbles and no one wants to visit St Lucia anymore.. remember not to blame it on either party, but rather on idiots such as yourself

    Between that incident and the shooting involving the injuring of 6 people on the same evening in the same town, I do really hope that BBC or CNN or the guardian ot the Gleaner do not catch sniff of it and publish something.

    Withe the numbers injured in last’s night shenanigans, that’s getting very close to passing the test for international publishing by a recognized media outlet, and, unfortunately, just as those in the colder climes are deciding where they should book for their winter vacations in January through March.

    I don’t know about everyone else, but it’s getting increasingly hard for me to, frankly, lie when asked bt friends offshore about whther they should try out SLU for either a family vacation or a higher-end couples-oriented getaway, both of which brin in for each a healthy 5-figures of $USD to our economy.

    The government needs to reduce the yap-yap and demonstrate both demonstrably measurable actions and commitment in this time at which our tourism-based economy is becoming increasingly frail and vulnerable due to lack of a firm hand on public safety and security.
