A FAMILY is thankful to God that their three children are alive after a car slammed into a shed under which they were relaxing in a hammock.

A shaken Feroze Khan of Number 50 Village recalled hearing a loud sound before jumping into rescue mode.

“I hear the loud sound and meh just run and grab them and rush inside. God knows what would ah happen to them if meh didn’t reach them cause seconds later the shed tumbled down,” he said.

According to information received, at approximately 19:00 hrs on Sunday, a car driven by Varsha Gurahoo, 25, was heading East and while navigating the Number 49 turn, swerved from two pedestrians who were walking in her lane.

In the process, her vehicle skidded on the wet parapet and toppled, hitting the electric wires and dismantling a shed belonging to the Khans’ before finally landing on the roadside drain and facing the opposite direction.

“All I see is she coming around the turn and heard screech! Brakes! Next thing the car end up on the grass and start topple. The car lash down the shed and I see the GPL wire start spark and the car bounce back and land upside down in the trench facing New Amsterdam side,” an eyewitness related.
