Bot­tle hurled by fight­ing men costs man an eye

Daily Nation (Barbados) - - Front Page -

GE­ORGE­TOWN – An early morn­ing visit to his brother’s home to wish him a merry Christ­mas turned out to be a night­mare for 24-year-old Dwayne Small, who later woke up on a hospi­tal bed mi­nus one of his eyes.

The con­struc­tion worker told the Guyana Chron­i­cle that he left his home to go check on his brother, but when he got there the man was not home. On his way back he de­cided to stop and have a con­ver­sa­tion with a friend, when a bot­tle, hurled by one of three fight­ing males, hit him in the left eye ren­der­ing him un­con­scious. He later found out from doc­tors that he would lose his left eye.

Char­lene Sem­ple, Small’s mother, told the Guyana Chron­i­cle she wanted jus­tice and com­pen­sa­tion for her son’s in­juries. She said that her son will not be able to work for a pro­longed pe­riod as he must stay out of the sun. (Guyana Chron­i­cle)
