A number of Corozal residents were left in shock last night when a man lost his life is what has been described as a freak accident. Residents had gathered at the Corozal Town Central Park for what was called “College Night” but before the festivities got underway, a freak accident claimed the life of forty year old Juan Carlos Meskita. Meskta who was a welder, was one of a team of men hired to install a metal flagpole at the Park for the upcoming September Celebrations when things went horribly wrong. Contractor Ario Botes tells us what happened.
As a result of the incident, the planned activity was cancelled.
