The relatives of a 22-year-old woman are seeking answers after she was found unconscious on the side of the road at about 05:45hrs Sunday morning, November 05, 2017.
Kescia Branche, the mother of a 3-year-old boy and a teacher at the Richard Ishmael Secondary School, was found in the vicinity of Princess Street and Louisa Row, Georgetown.
She was rushed via an ambulance to the Georgetown Public Hospital where she remains a patient in an unconscious state. News Room understands that she has a broken leg and head injuries.
According to her father, Alfred Branche, his daughter resides at Cummings Lodge and left to go out with friends Saturday evening. He told News Room that he received a telephone call from an unknown person Sunday morning informing him that his daughter is at the hospital.
“We don’t know if this was an accident, we don’t know if this was a case of an attack on her by someone and she would’ve been dumped from a car or attacked. We’ve not been able to ascertain what has contributed towards the current situation,” the distraught father told News Room.
The man said he visited the hospital today and learned that his daughter is still unconscious and is hooked up to a life support machine.
“They have said they done what they can do so far and she’s now under observation.”
According to Branche, thus far he has been able to gather that his daughter was last seen with a group of friends. As such, he is now trying to find out who those friends are.
The News Room was informed that no report of an accident was made at the Police Station. However, an investigation has been launched into the matter by officers who were called in at the hospital, Branche said.
Anyone who saw Kescia Branche on the evening of Saturday, November 04, or have any information on what occurred, is asked to contact the family on telephone numbers: 592-644-3857, 592-677-8733.
