The aunt of one of the two young men who died after the motorbike on which they were travelling collided with a car at Richfond, Dennery, Saturday night, has expressed concern over the posting on social media of graphic images from the accident.
“My concern, I don’t know if it is government – I don’t know which institution; I don’t know if they have to amend the law. I find when they have those graphic kind of images, people need to respect people’s loved ones,” Alymphia, the aunt of the late Dexter Smith said.
“They need to put some kind of order when it happens, that the police would just cover the body until the doctor pronounces them dead or something, but those graphic images – I think it is unfair to persons with their family all over the place like that,” she declared.
The aunt said some persons actually found out about the accident as a result social media where photos of the accident victims on the ground were posted.
According to reports, Jayvan Louis and Dexter Smith were on a motorcycle which collided with a car travelling in the opposite direction.
Emergency officials said both young males were in an unresponsive state when they were transported to the Dennery Hospital and were later pronounced dead.
The driver of the car sustained what appeared to be injuries that were no serious and opted not to be transported to hospital for medical attention, according to the officials.
