Barbados: Emergency in court

An aunt, charged along with her nephew, who allegedly went on a more than $80 000 shopping spree with someone else’s credit card, triggered a medical emergency in court Thursday when she collapsed after being remanded, local news reports say.

According to Barbados Nation, hours after her attorney submitted that Guyanese Hannah Elydia Reid was diabetic and hypertensive and she had been remanded pending medical proof, the woman collapsed in the District “A” Magistrates’ Court.

The 51-year-old was rushed to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital by ambulance, the publication reported.

Reid, of Deveshire Castle, Guyana, had been waiting in court for more than an hour, for police to escort her to Central Police Station, from where she would be taken to HMP Dodds, after she had been remanded on a fraud charge, it said.
