No strangling here, says Major

MAJOR JULIET EWART, who is in charge of the Salvation Army’s Wellington Street Corps, told the SUNDAY SUN yesterday that no one at their Wellington Street Nursery tried to strangle an infant on February 5.

Ewart said that when the 18-month-old was picked up by his aunt that evening he was a “healthy and happy infant”.

The child’s mother, Mariah Bobb-Blackman, is convinced that someone tried to strangle her child at the nursery after a doctor confirmed that marks around his neck were made with a cord or a string.

Recalling that evening, Ewart said during a telephone interview that after the infant left the nursery nobody called to say anything was wrong with him. (MB)
