Man injured in row over coconut ‘critical’

A man who was injured Monday at La Tourney, Vieux Fort,  during a row over a coconut is in critical condition at St Jude hospital, law enforcement sources have told St Lucia Times.

The victim has been identified as Shem Sanghanoo, 25.

One of the injured man’s relatives told St Lucia Times that according to reports from eyewitnesses,  at around noon Monday Sanghanoo had picked some coconuts for his girlfriend’s uncle when another man in the neighbourhood took one of the coconuts without permission.

An argument ensued during which Sanghanoo sustained  lacerations to the right side of his neck and his right arm, it is reported.

He was conveyed to St Jude hospital.

Police are reported to have seized the machete that was used in the attack on Sanghanoo and are on the hunt for the suspect.

    Did you know Midnight Groovers lead singer was sent to prison for stealing one coconut, and hence the song?

    Coco is responsible for a lot of problems in this world, you know 😀

    For a coconut you going to get chopped for. A man took one coconut and you want to get on like an ass for one coconut. What is the world coming to. all dat could have been avoided.

    The ppl who are commenting for one coconut the point is the coconuts we’re not his he cud of ask for a coconut u cannot just see ppl damn things n push your hands in it. And alot of ppl after they are wrong they want to be strong… sometimes you just ask them y u take my thing without asking me for it and they wud fly up in the air n start getting on curseing you on your Moda they even go as far as threatening you…so ppl its not just one coconut is the attitude n the response after taking what’s not yours
