  1. A very sad and tragic event which is a reflection of the state of health care in this country. Successive Governments are to blame since they have all failed to get St. Jude’s operational in its original location since the hospital fire of 2009.

    • This story gives the wrong impression. The lady was admitted because she had a serious heart condition. She tried to get off the bed with the machine attached to her. The monitor just grazed her head. Bet she died of a heart attack.

      • Are you such a strong flambeau that you must try to deflect anything negative that happens under your party’s watch. I wonder if you would feel the same if that lady was your relatives.

      • Truth being Told, you have just hit the lowest low. You will make up a story about a tragic death just to defend your party. You are very very sick. With idiots like you, how can the country progress? SMH

  3. Will the conspiracy theorists please cool it? a very sick lady died – of what ever on a hospital bed
    then comes the politics – on both sides of the divide. Will St. Lucians ever heal themselves of this
    political scourge of ” I am better than thou “.?
