  1. I was at the jouvert n I heard about this but I didn’t knw it was tru am so sorry for her. May she rest in peace

  2. I often observed and commented about this type of incident happening. It was only a matter of time before something like this happen. Now I’d bet that “they” would have some safety measures in place after the fact. Poor child just having fun and something so tragic. SVG has lost another youth.
