No word from son in Dominica
AFTER HURRICANE MARIA pummelled Dominica on Monday night, two Barbadian parents are worried after not hearing from their son.
Local cricketer Kyle Mayers, 25, left the island early last week for Dominica to join the Windward Islands franchise team in a training camp in preparation for the Cricket West Indies’ Professional Cricket League, which starts at the end of next month.
National Sports Council coach Shirley Clarke, himself a former Barbados cricketer, said he heard his son on Monday and in the wee hours of yesterday, but lost contact with him.
“I heard him before the hurricane just to make sure he was okay. It was around 1 p.m. on Monday afternoon, then around 10 p.m. into 11 p.m. It was on WhatsApp. The last time I heard him was around 2 a.m. [yesterday] morning. I tried to talk to him but I lost communication. He said it was very rough and he was afraid,” said Clarke. (RG)
