Youth hero left with a bitter taste

A BARBADOS YOUTH SERVICE cadet, who rose to national prominence last March after he helped save the life of a visitor at Browne’s Beach, St Michael, is unhappy with the treatment meted out to him by a police officer during investigations into an incident at a summer camp Tuesday.

Seventeen-year-old Dre Browne, who had used his skills learned at the youth service to help the visitor after she was pulled from the sea, however found himself in the situation that left him with no answers.

Browne, a camp counsellor for just over a week, said an officer at the station told him that if he were the police on the scene he would put him six feet under ground and claim that he was running away.

Browne said the entire incident evolved around 4 p.m. when he and a group of his friends witnessed a fight between two teenagers at the summer camp at Luther Thorne Primary School. (TG)
