A school trip has gone horribly wrong for some students of Ladyville Evangelical Primary School. Two buses filled with students, parents and the principal are stuck, unable to make it back through the rough road which the heavy rains have made worse. The school’s standard six students embarked on a field trip to the FCD Ranger’s post in the Chiquibul Forest but on their way back, the clay road has been it difficult for the two buses to pass. The students are stuck near the ‘Prevacion’ Bridge. A parent, Herbert Stuart, says that the students have been stuck for hours and the heaving rains continue. He told Love News that they have been trying to get help but no one seems able to do so.
When we last spoke to Stuart, he told us that Ministry of Works had agreed to assist.
