Distraught mother attempts suicide

A distraught mother attempted suicide this morning by consuming a corrosive substance, the woman’s daughter has told the Times.

The incident occurred at Desglo.

According to the 21-year old daughter, the family has been plagued with financial problems since her father died about a year ago.

The daughter told the Times that her mother was diagnosed with breast cancer and has been coping with intense pain, adding to the family’s woes.

According to the young woman, she herself has been trying hard to obtain employment in order to bring in money,  but to no avail.

She said she found her mother at about 7 O’ clock this morning sitting at their home with a bottle of corrosive liquid at her feet.

The distraught older woman confessed to consuming some of the liquid, the daughter explained.

She daughter said she immediately summoned the emergency services and the police and her mother was rushed to hospital.

“They told me she might not make it,” the daughter lamented when asked about her mother’s current condition.

She is her mother’s only child.

    When will Evil Chastanet realise that it is on the country’s best interest that he resigns, pack his bags and return to his homeland, Martinique.
    You do this, and you will see an immediate change in this Islands bad fortunes.

    Sad but true keep your trap shut if you can’t say something positive There were so many suicide when the SLP was in power, were you blaming them?
    Is Chastenet the cause of the family financial problems and the lady’s breast cancer. Stop behaving like a fool, STOP the hate, lets love one another so out country will be a better place.

    This story is indeed heart-wrenching! Sometimes life burdens become unbearable but we still have to hold on to hope to maintain some form of sanity. The economic situation of the country brings on untold suffering on some of us, in this case, desperation! Despite the odds, I hope she would survive.

    Whilst some of you like to sit and blame whichever administration is heading the country…how about we as young person sit n think about the contributions we can make to our. Ousted and individual communities.we all suffer financial constraints,some worst than others.stretch a hand to a neighbor,a friend,family member even a stranger;you will be surprised as to how u helped that person ,etc.EDUCATE URSELVes instead of making foolish comments.you don’t know wat people go through on a daily basis some of us are stronger emotionally and some of us have ppl to help us and keep us stron so Sad-but-true (Words deleted)

    So sad. The economy is tough. I felt this one, and wht really aches me is that, we hv ppl tht can help. Financially. Or even giving a job. Ppl please help one another. Life will be much better. When u cnnt pay ur bills. No jobs, no income. It’s hard. I hope the Lord will give u strength. The one lady keep the faith. Just pray and believe, prayers do help. I can testify. God please help this family.

    What’s sad is there are more women out there going thru something similar to what she is going thru in silence it feels like you are suffocating daily yes we talk but when talking is done you quickly remember the problems you having lack of work sending in applications no response they say cry it helps for a short while no one knows no one cares and when you let them know you get gossiped about in group it hurts so bad mentality and physically what most of us have to go thru just to be able to have food to eat it’s heart wrenching but who cares unemployment is considered a sin in my world .

    It is a sad state of affairs. My heart aches for this family. No matter how vile you find Sad but Ture’s comments, the fact remains that Kenny was blamed for everything. I don’t see how Chastanet can’t be blamed here when there is a clear (cause – economic hardship) and (effect – desperation) relationship that has resulted in this tragic result. Where is Chastanet when people are killing themselves for lack of work and healthcare. He is responsible. Chastanet might as well have poured the poison down this woman’s throat

    This is such a sad situation. I pray for her daughter. She lost her dad and now her mom. We as a country need to pull together to help each other. As for you sad but true you are a fool. Suicides have been happening long before uwp won the elections. Are we going to blame chastenet for the suicides in ameroca too. We need to stop looking to put the blame on others and put it on ourselves. We have become lazy and expect the government to take up our slack. Get up people and do something instead of just talking. We are to blame not the government. We need to get on our knees because we are the ones to blame.

    Yes, but the spates of suicides in Babonneau was blamed on the then Government. When you get on your knees, try telling God the truth about what a big hippocrite you are.
