  1. My sympathy goes out. Teach people to swim from a young age. Shame that on an Island…many can’t swim. Time to use pools to teach swimming lessons. If you not costal, chance are you can not swim. SFSJCC.org

  2. Well said @Unknown.medic. the current tgis river/s have is at top speed as winds of a terrible hurricane. It is just too sad this lil 11yr old lost his life and i do hope that he wasnt pushed by his friends…hmmm just saying…this does not add up…my sympathies to the families. God bless

  3. so based on the comments ive read there, a st lucian should jump in the raging waters and go rescue the child. wow. water is travelling at that speed in a river, jump in the water to save a child where the water has him way ahead of you. where will u get that child again? its safe for u all to sit behind ur devices and post stuff. wow.
