Bottle hurled by fighting men costs man an eye
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)
