Gweneth Roberts of Marigot said when she left her village for the city on Saturday morning with her kids; she would never imagine that it would be the last time seeing her 12-year-old daughter Keyana Emmanuel.
Roberts and her son were among 10 other individuals involved in a tragic accident on the Pond Casse road on that rainy and fateful Saturday morning.
“We left home that morning to go to town to take some photos to send to Guadeloupe for their father (Laurent Emmanuel). Just before we left she told her brother she didn’t want to go to town because her clothes had gotten wet but we still went,” Robert recalled.
According to Roberts the bus driver wasn’t really speeding “but he wasn’t driving slow either” and according to her, “a certain time I just felt the bus on one side then it flipped over twice and then I don’t remember much.”
She explained further that, “Everything went dark for a bit and then when I opened my eyes I saw my daughter lying on the ground.”
Roberts said she had lost all hopes when she saw how badly injured her daughter was.
“Her head was split. Her brain was even coming off it. I even held some in my hands and she was bleeding all over,” she sobbed.
She said young Keyana Emmanuel was quiet and fun to be around.
“I don’t know why this happened. All I can do is cry,” she said.
