Boy, 7, injured after Haslington house collapses; family seeking help
A seven-year-old boy was injured after a Haslington, East Coast Demerara (ECD) house, collapsed on Friday at about 11:30 hrs.
Injured is Danielio Wilson. According to his mother, Melisa Faye-Wilson, he is responding well to treatment at the Georgetown Public Hospital.
Faye-Wilson told the News Room that Danielio, his siblings (aged four and nine), her husband and brother were all in the house just before the incident occurred.
“Whole week heavy breeze blowing and when it blow the house is shake,” Faye- Wilson said.
She said her husband, Harri Kissoon, told her that the wooden house started “creaking” after there were heavy winds again that morning and as such, he alerted everyone, urging them to go outside.
While most persons made it to safety, the seven-year-old boy was pinned under the stairs inside the house. He was eventually rescued and rushed to the hospital for treatment.
The two other children are staying with a neighbour but Faye-Wilson, her husband and brother have been staying in their yard, next to the collapsed structure. The family cannot afford to rebuild.
As such, Faye-Wilson is requesting any assistance that can be provided to her family. She can be contacted at: 687-8783.
