Baby Dies Af­ter House Fire

The Star (St. Lucia) - - LOCAL -

On Thurs­day April 27, 2017 about 8:20 p.m. of­fi­cers at­tached to the Marigot Po­lice Sta­tion re­ceived a re­port of a house fire at Fond Claub, La Croix Main­got.

Upon ar­rival the of­fi­cers ob­served a com­pletely burnt wooden struc­ture. The res­i­dence was oc­cu­pied by a fam­ily of five in­di­vid­u­als. Ten-month-old twin in­fants were within the struc­ture at the time when the fire al­legedly com­menced and sus­tained se­vere injuries. A male in­di­vid­ual, iden­ti­fied as their fa­ther, also sus­tained injuries dur­ing an at­tempt to res­cue the twins.

They were con­veyed to the Vic­to­ria Hos­pi­tal via pri­vate means. Kerri Louis, one of the twins, suc­cumbed to the injuries he sus­tained dur­ing the fire and died at about 2:00 a.m. on Fri­day, April 28, 2017.

A post mortem ex­am­i­na­tion con­ducted upon the body by Dr. Wayne Feli­cien re­vealed that Kerri Louis died as a re­sult of hy­po­v­olemic shock sec­ondary to ex­ten­sive burns to the body.
