Shootings, physical assaults and motor vehicle accidents were among incidents prompting weekend responses by the Saint Lucia Fire Service (SLFS).
That’s according to the SLFS report for the period April 30 to May 3.
SLFS spokeswoman Stacy Joseph disclosed that there were a total of 80 weekend ambulance responses.
Joseph said two emergency calls related to shooting incidents and there was one fire call.
Two calls pertained to vehicle incidents while five related to physical assaults.
One of the physical assaults occurred at Baron’s Drive, Soufriere on Sunday afternoon.
As a result, Soufriere fire station personnel transported a male who had sustained multiple puncture wounds to the Soufriere Hospital.
With regard to the shootings, one occurred at Maynard Hill on Saturday and another the following day at La Borne, Monchy.
Joseph explained that in both cases emergency responders transported the male victims to OKEU Hospital.
Meanwhile, on Friday, emergency personnel at the Babonneau fire station responded to a report that a vehicle had flipped over onto a house in the community.
However, the SLFS spokeswoman said the vehicle’s three occupants declined medical assistance at the scene.
In addition, on Saturday fire service headquarters personnel transported a female to OKEU Hospital.
This after a vehicle struck her on La Toc road, Castries.
And on Monday, Fire Service Headquarters received a call at approximately 5:50 a.m. about a seemingly unresponsive individual at Sarrot.
“The responding emergency personnel found on the scene, an adult male who was lying on his side on the ground,” Joseph stated.
But she explained that due to obvious signs of death, he was left in the care of Police Officers.
