Sammy mourns with fellow St Lucians

KOLKATA – West Indies captain Darren Sammy today expressed his condolences to the families of those killed when a bus plunged off a cliff and into the ocean, in St Lucia.
As many as 19 people were reported dead when a minibus carrying mourners back from a funeral crashed on Friday in the community of Mount Sion, in Choiseul, south-east of the capital Castries.
It was the most tragic vehicular accident in the island’s history.
“My heart goes out to the [Duggard] community and families in this tragic time,” said Sammy, who is a member of the same community.
He is also the first St Lucian to play for West Indies.
“Being a positive person, I intend to use this as a motivation to go out there to play well,” Sammy told the media on the eve of the second Test between India and the West Indies here.
“If there is one thing that could bring a smile in such times is to see a West Indies team win.”
The bus driver was a friend of Sammy’s father. (CMC)
