Soldier stationed at FOB in critical condition

A soldier of the Belize Defence Force is in critical condition following a freak accident on the Sarstoon. It happened about one o’clock this afternoon at the Forward Operating Base; Private Fidel Williams was on duty and was walking on the pier when his foot hit a deteriorated plank that subsequently fell apart causing Williams to fall. His fall resulted in a piece of steel penetrating the back of his head causing severe injuries to his face and eye. He was flown out shortly after and is now hospitalized. Senior officers in Belmopan and at Price Barracks are still awaiting an official report on the incident. Williams was into his ninth day on duty and was slated to leave the base next week.
