Just over 90 minutes after inseparable friends (from left) Jilisa Ifill, Jalisa Clement and Rachel Pilgrim took this picture on Sunday, one of them was dead, and the other is fighting for her life in hospital.
According to Jilisa’s camera, this picture was taken at 8:01 p.m. while inside the washroom at Chefette Harbour Road. The best friends went there for a snack and were just relaxing before heading back to the University of the West Indies Wet Fete being held at the nearby Party Stand. They never reached there.
The three were involved in an accident with a car around 9:35 p.m. When the car came to a stop, Rachel lay dead, Jalisa was next to her screaming in pain from head and neck injuries, while Jilisa was near the other side of the road, dazed and nursing minor injuries.
Last night, a still traumatized Jilisa who was released from the Queen Elizabeth Hospital yesterday morning, was mourning the loss of Rachel and hoping her other friend, Jalisa, would be all right. (SP)
