  1. The owner of this compa y should be held liable for the death of this individual. Simple reason – that company should have been shutdown due to the Corona virus pandemic. Because of greed the owner disregard the shutdown which is in place to prevent the spread of the virus and save lives. The law should therefore make an example out of this Jack asston.

    • If u have no idea *** u talking abt! Then plss ****! Ure still going to town the bank gas station i presume?

  2. Workers have an obligation to take care of themselves, up to and including to do work that they deem dangerous. This guy should have been given fall protection equipment. harness & rope.
    But then again this is St. Lucia, so everything go’s! from my house deck I’ve seen construction workers working on a house across the road. They tip toeing between re-bar while cement is being poured. Bare feet! no gum boots no nothing! Nothing in this article surprises me.
