Canadian accused pays fine in death of Saint Lucian boy

A Canadian man accused in the drowning of a four-year-old boy in Saint Lucia was ordered today to pay the sum of $75,000 in compensation to the boy’s family or be sent to jail for three years.

It is reported that the fine was paid.

Sahab Jamshidi was charged with causing death by gross negligence or recklessness in the drowning of Terrel Joshua Elibox,who drowned in the sea in Vieux Fort on Feb. 22 two years ago.

According to reports, the child fell into the sea after getting a ride from a kite surfer.

Jamshidi’s supporters maintain he was trying to help the child after seeing him struggle in the water.

    After keeping the man in jail for so long… this is the outcome. Tragic Legal system. An innocent man is being charged for the negilence of others. That grandma should be jailed.

    The backward illiterate Chastanet administration had something to do with it. This is nothing short but White Privilege in this island. White PM and white criminal escapes smiling.
    Evil Chastanet, one way or the other, you will be removed from office. You are not a St. Lucia.

    It is a sad situation for both families. But i believe that if the people responsible for having the baby on the beach was looking after him this would not have happen. And secondly they would be able to tell a better story. That man must be crazy or mad to take a kid on such a dangerous adventure without permission, or was he really and truly trying to save him. God , satan, the man and the kid alone knows. May he rest in peace. Am so sad cause i have little adventurous babies to.

    Was it a fine or compensation. As far as I know a fine goes to the government and compensation goes to the person affected. The two are being mixed up here.
