A woman from Orange Walk Town was killed in a freak accident yesterday. Today Assistant Commissioner of Police Joseph Myvett shared what Police have gathered so far about the accident.
ACP Joseph Myvette: “Yesterday sometime around 5:30 pm Police was called to an area in San Felipe Village where a horse race was ongoing where upon arrival one Evelina Sulima Celiz 36 years was seen with injuries. She was rushed to the Northern Regional Hospital I believe where she eventually succumbed to her injuries while undergoing her treatment. Initial investigation reveals that a horse race was in progress when Ms. Celiz attempted to cross the track somewhere after the finish line and was ran over by one of the horses that was involved in the race causing her injuries.”
Celiz was an employee of NEMO and Love News spoke with Minister Edmond Castro who said she was a hard worker who will be dearly missed.
