One dead, three injured in boating incident

One man is reported dead and three others sustained serious injuries as a result of a boating incident at around midnight Friday, according to the police.

The incident occurred when a Marine Police vessel attempted to intercept a canoe, it is reported.

Initial reports indicate that the canoe, which had four persons on board,  rammed the police vessel resulting in extensive damage to the canoe.

The four persons on board the canoe – two Venezuelans and two Saint Lucians, sustained serious injuries.

One of the men was later pronounced dead by a Doctor at St Jude Hospital, according to the police.

He was identified only as a Saint Lucian who was the Captain of the canoe.

      Truer words have never been spoken. If only the average person knows how corrupt this country is. You people really don’t believe it. All levels of business, politics, law and the judiciary. I’m surprised this country hasn’t fallen into anarchy yet.

    POLITICIANS ARE THE ONLY ONES DOING ALL THE BOBOL EATING THE MONEY OF THE COUNTRY AND LEAVING IT TO STAND LIKE A SKELETON AND THEY PAY THE POLICE TO GUARD THE BORDERS TO PREVENT THE SMALL MAN FROM EATING A BREAD. MY QUESTION IS WHERE IS THE DRUGS THAT WAS FOUND IN THE VESSEL, SOON FROM NOW IT WILL BE ON THE STREETS AND BEING SOLD BY THE POLICE AND SOME OF US HAVE THE HEART TO COMMEND THE POLICE ON A JOB WELL DONE?

      You know damn well when the police try to stop them they never stop. Always giving the police the reason to shoot. The (Word deleted) they were doing needs to stop my friend. Why don’t you all talk to your families and friends that doing the (Word deleted). Every time they ass get it trouble is when you all want to talk and blame the police, when the police do nothing you all complain, and when they do, you all complain as well.

    There are these videos of Scott Atkins going around on social media… He seems to have been kidnapped by Venezuelan nationals, and the video shows him being tortured severely.. Why? Because of this freaking drug trade…. Screw all y’all bad minded, drug pusher encouraging, mother suckered out there, who have nothing worthwhile to say… I am freaking upset that police officers like myself, put ourselves on the line, stand in harms way, in the dead of night, in the worst circumstances imaginable, to try to uphold the freaking law; but some of you dead beats out there can’t see our efforts for what it is… “He’s a good boy!” HE’S ALWAYS A FREAKING GOOD BOY!!!!!

    Alert to the Atkins family of Desruisseaux. The Venezuelans must have been coming for Shawn, their US$139K+, or to effect retrubution on you all. Submitting the video to the police won’t help. Because if the first 2 can’t do it becayse they git hurt in this boating accident, then another crew WILL show up to finish the job.

    All excuses for criminals trying to coverup and create doubt. Fishermen don’t ram police boats neither do they run from police because they have a load of red fish. Clean up the mess officers wherever it is. One held hostage is Venezuela and two others were held by the Colombians off Gros Islet because their boss owed money and had to pay their ransom. No excuses for criminals who destroy our young people and society. Time to clean up Gros Islet and the rest of St. Lucia from these lazy bastards who don’t want to do an honest day’s work. I bet they don’t push that to their own kids. (Word deleted)
