        Because you can say what you want does not mean that you always have to say everything that comes to mind. That comment deserves no respect.

    I saw that accident when the vehicle was burning didn’t see the entire accident itself..i must say something here this the driver was carrying weapons or something dangerous to have cuased it to expload the way it did these things are seen in Hollywood movies the drive needs to be investigated and questioned.i believe the woman’s life could’ve been saved if the driver had acted speedily.also the fire service took a million years to arrived at the accident when the ambulance was already there… the system we have in st.lucia is sick many will have to die literally before getting assistance from the revelant authorities..

      Your comment is very ridiculous. Everybody should know that when a vehicle has caught on flames like this, it’s not wise to go near it. Had the person video taping this went to help, the blast could have taken them two, resulting in a 3rd person injured or dead. If the person could have gone to help only if the vehicle hadn’t caught on fire yet.

    The vedio is actually 1minute and 42 seconds. I may be wrong but i stand to be corrected .Was the Gros Islet Fire Service called? How far is the Fire Station? Taking into consideration of calling time, Firemen are suppose to be on standby for emergency responses. A busy road as the Castries to Gros Islet Highway and my word such close proximity. How long did it take for both Ambulance and Fire Trucks to resond provided they were called. But again i stand to be corrected . Just asking !
    I would like to advise most vehicle owners to carry a minature Fire Extinguisher in their vehicles as means of fire protection. Even if it’s not the vehicle we drive we can assist another. Our last vehicle fire tragedy was on the Bexon Highway was a sad one and this one cannot even be stomach by me. TO ALL THE FAMILY AND FRIENDS MY PRAYERS, SUPPORT AND CONDOLENCES+++++++++

    When you don’t know you keep quiet. Would you attempt to remove a burning vehicle off someone with such fire? What really could the video person do other than record. He could not help the lady. Firemen are on standby but they have to get into their gear and that does not take 15 seconds. A life was lost and we feel emotional but we must also be realistic. She lost her life as soon as the vehicle landed on her. The fire department could not make it in 5 minutes and even then they wouldn’t be able to save her. May she RIP and may the driver pull through by the grace of God.
