THE LARGE NUMBER of Barbadian motorists who drove by a little child in school uniform as she lay unconscious on a Bay Street sidewalk has left a City woman numb.
Dunlow Lane, Bridgetown resident Joan Marshall told the DAILY NATION she was shocked to see so many people look at the nine-year-old girl in the uniform of a Christ Church school curled up on the pavement and just keep driving.
Carl Harewood, a Barbados Defence Force soldier who was the first person to go to the child’s aid, told the DAILY NATION he was driving when he saw the girl collapse to the ground.
“She was standing up holding her stomach and I just see her drop down on the ground,” he said, as he advised a small crowd that had gathered not to touch her. (MB)
