An incident in San Pedro Colombia in the Toledo District has claimed the life of a ten year old girl. It happened sometime before eight o’clock this morning when the child’s grandfather was cutting a branch off a tree, known in Belize as BriBri. We are told that the child, who lives with her parents across the street from her grandparents’ house, came into the yard and happened to run under the tree at the exact moment that the branch fell down. Her uncle Edwardo Che identified her as Edna Che. He told Love News what he understands happened.
The branch, we are told, fell directly on her causing fatal neck and head injuries. The child was rushed to the San Pedro Colombia clinic but we are told she had passed by the time she arrived.
