=====Fundraiser for island resident after freak accident leaves her injured
Ana Cruz, a resident of the Elliot Sub-division in San Pedro Town, was the victim of a tragic accident just outside her home on August 8th. In the unexpected mishap, Cruz’ right hand was badly injured, and she lost three of her fingers. Her recovery has been painful and up to now, no one has been held liable. Cruz will need to undergo major medical treatments, which will be costly, thus, a fundraiser has been organized. On Friday, August 30th, a dollar drive and a radio-thon is to take place on Reef Radio. The following day, there will be a Bar-B-Que sale at the San Pedro Lions Den.
After spending some days receiving medical treatment, she returned to the island and reportedly gave a statement to the San Pedro Police Formation about the accident. The San Pedro Sun attempted to get an official report on the incident, with no luck. When inquired about the accident, police said they were looking into it, but did not provide any further details.
In the meantime, help is needed and the entire community is asked to come out and support the fundraiser to help a beloved island resident.Click here to read the rest of the article in the San Pedro Sun
