UPDATE: Man dies in Canefield cliff accident

Carlson Corbette

A young man of Checkhall has died following a motorcycle accident which occurred earlier this evening under the Canefield cliff.

According to eyewitnesses, Carlson Corbette was flung over the retaining wall along a section of the Fond Cole/Canefield highway and into the water below when the motorcycle he was riding hit the wall.

According to one eyewitness who arrived on the scene minutes after the accident occurred, passers-by stopped and after he was located in the dark water, Corbette was brought up by some men who were on the scene and laid on the wall.

That eyewitness reported seeing Corbette “frothing at mouth, seemingly unconscious but breathing.”

About 15 minutes later an ambulance came and he was transported to hospital.

DNO understands that he died at around 10:50 pm.

DNO will bring you more information on that story as soon as it becomes available.

    Only god can judge Carlson.
    Carlson was tormented by people because of all what happened in the past! Thats why he died that way.

    I’m slightly disgusted by all the negative remarks. Whether he was responsible for the deaths of others or not, this young man died and it is very unfortunate. taking his license away may or may not have stopped him from driving. We will never know. However, people will continue to drive if they have a keys to a vehicle. Taking a license away cant stop you from driving. Heck, some people driving without a license. The important thing here is to realize what can we learn from this. Dominica needs to start cracking down on people drinking and driving, also needs to start investing in better ems services so people. Don’t have to wait 15 minutes for critical help. Arresting people who are consistently involved in accidents resaulting In the deat or injury of others. I knew Carlson. Very sorry for his family at this difficult time. I hope this sparks a conversation on changing the laws in Dominica. Instead of SKerrit spending all that money on state house just to have one he should spend it on improving the roads, enforcing stricter controls, laws and propper training for ems personnel. To better handle these types of accidents.

    THE ONLY NEGATIVE COMMENTS ARE FROM THOSE HE DID NOT PERSONALLY KNOW CARLSON. HE HAD HIS FLAWS AND YES HE BEARED HIS CROSS,IT HURT HIM EVERYDAY. HE WAS A LOVING MAN. HIS MEMORIES SHALL FOREVER LIVE ON WITHIN ME. I AM HONOURED TO HAVE BEEN PART OF HIS LIFE.

    Matthew 7:1-6

    “Judge not, that you be not judged. For with the judgment you pronounce you will be judged, and with the measure you use it will be measured to you. Why do you see the speck that is in your brother’s eye, but do not notice the log that is in your own eye? Or how can you say to your brother, ‘Let me take the speck out of your eye,’ when there is the log in your own eye? You hypocrite, first take the log out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to take the speck out of your brother’s eye.

    Carson,
    may your soul rest in perfect peace.You came into my lifeabout 2 yrs ago as my broker, and became someone that I trusted and depended on.However when I spoke to you on Monday, you told me that you felt like you were “Dying” from a draft. you had one week of being quiet before you said goodby, was it to make peace with your soul, the world? you were a very hard worker,a good guy in my eyes.I will miss you dearly, but God knows best.The world may condem you, only God has the answer to you salvation. sail on my Brother, The Goal of Life is not the Grave, and death does not have the final say….

    Let’s talk about taking licence? Did they take the licence of the partner that hit the man by public works? Cause I see him driving the same vehicle, same number, same colour. They say he was going mad after the accident, was that a show? I would not be able to drive the same vehicle, on the same road, so soon.???????

      December 28, 2012

      they cannot take somebody licence without a case/trial taking place. if he is found guilty then as part of his sentence, they can suspend his drivers licence for number of years. But in cases like this, there is usually no justice. people kill people on the road and walk freely. But for how long? hmmmmmmmm. Most of them end up dying the same way.

    Could not believe when i heard this sad news. Inspite of quite the negative comments here (some may actually be the harsh truth) Carlson was a great friend to me. He was a brother, son, father and we should not rejoice at anyone’s death. Who are we to judge? No one is perfect!!
    May his soul rest in eternal peace.
    Before i close off, why don’t we all take a look at ourselves and think of the wrongs that we do and try to make them right.

    I will say RIP Carlson, it is unfortunate that you and your 3 other victims died in that manner.

    But I feel no pity for Carlson nor his family. I went to school with Carlson, and soon after his first accident when he killed that guy who was crossing the street, I wondered why on earth Carlson still continued to drive so recklessly and did not seem to be the least bit guilty knowing that he was responsible for taking anothers life. It was said back then that his license was not taken bc his father was a police officer. But then the deaths due to his driving still continued. 10 yrs later, I am not happy that you have passed Carlson, but at least this time another did not die because of your driving, and no one else will die bc of your driving. This accident is no shock at all, it was just a matter of time. Nepotism is never right and in this case, your fathers protection has resulted in the death of too many people including yourself. I really think it’s unfortunate that this is what your life has come down to. I hope you do rest in peace Carlson.

    This accident should not be striking up convos about helmet safety etc etc instead we ought to be questioning why he was allowed to drive. At least when the first accident occurred efforts should have been made to teach him how to drive properly. I don’t know anyone else who has taken so many lives due to driving alone.

    Yes, it’s true that the emergency workers likely lack like saving treatment skills. It’s true that his life could probably have been saved. However, the most important point at this time, is 4 deaths is way too many. His parents/authorities should have looked into his driving skills from since the first death.

    None of the 4 of you deserved to die. RIP Carlson.

      December 24, 2012

      Remember it was an accident and also we are not perfect as well. Only God is perfect and we should not carry burdens of the past. God forgives and not one of you bringing up the past knew the condition of the man’s heart at the time of his death or before his death. He may have repented who know. Do you remember the story of the woman caught commiting adultery and the crowd who came so Jesus would tell them to stone her. Well he asked that the one without any sin should throw the first stone. They filed away one by one. What did he say to the woman – Where are they who condemned you. She replied they were all gone and his words – “neither do I condemn you … but go and sin no more”. People those of you who keep bringing up the past need to look inside and see if you are up to the best and doing as God wants you to do. You are carrying hatred in your heart and this is dangerous for you and your family. Release the man and look at your self and be the best you can be so you rlight will shine so others will see thru you. God is a merciful and forrgiving God and he does not want anyone of us to persish so let us all go to this throne of grace and mercy. He loves not one of us over the other. But we have life and we have to make the right choice whom we rolling with.

      At his hand ???? really?? I never knew that he was accused or convicted of any crimes.

      If you are so gay and proud you should publish your name and photograph seeing that you have nothing to hide.

      You people are too quick to pass judgement, What has Carlson’s family ever done to deserve this? He is dead let his family grieve in peace for gods sake.

      None of you had anything to say to him when he was alive,so let it be.

      Come one man “Dominica” you can do better than that.

    No one knows what was the cause of the accident yet but I honestly think that ppl in Dominica have a negative mind about bikers and have little or no respect for them on the road, they are motorist just like the big trucks we give room. It have a lot of chauffers who give bad drive that cause accidents, not saying that is the case but that’s a problem. The guys must be more careful and wear protective gears, our roads are to small for high speed.

    I also think that the EMS need better and improved training to able to stabilize patients before transportation to hospital or assign nurses with the guys for time like this…

    RIP Biker

    I’m really shocked to see the responses from those god fearing Dominicans who go to church but yet rejoice in another man’s demise! It’s as if you all will never die. Whatever mistakes this young made which may have resulted in another persons death it so borderline disgusting to rejoice and chant him down now that his not here anymore. I really doubt he went out to hurt or kill anyone. Sometimes when you’re young you can be negiligent and only focused on your ownself. It doesn’t mean that his intetions were to cause harm or hurt to anyone. If someone was on his bike and got hurt shouldn’t they be blamed as much as him for getting on his bike? Did he hold a gun to anyone’s head and forced them on his bike? If he caused the death of another motorists on the street I’m sure he didn’t predict being the cause of that. Very sad to hear about carlson. Went to CDCC with him and he was a pretty decent person boastful and flashy like many Dominican males. But hey who’s not when they’re young?
    Some of you who claim to be family of Carlson’s so called ‘victims’ need to move on and stop disrespecting the your selves in such away. Let your family RIP. Remember yesterday was his but today or tomorrow could be yours and the last thing you’d want is to get to those pearly gates with hatred and condemnation for the dead.

      December 24, 2012

      Honestly speaking, I’m a family member of someone who died in an accident in which this young man had a big part to play in. I’m not rejoicing in his death because I know the pain myself and family went through when we got the news when it happened. So even if at the time we blamed him for what happened, life is too funny to rejoice at the way Carlson lost his life, because while some are rejoicing we never know what will happen when we walk out our front doors.

      However I would like to say this and I hope I’m not stepping on anyone’s toes. But, when my family member was killed in that accident a couple years ago, a court case was healed trying to charge Carlson with involuntary manslaughter or murder or whatever the charge was back then…when the matter was brought before the court it was reported that the evidence was “lost”. Only for my family to find out that it allegedly was a conspiracy to keep Carlson out of jail and that it worked because his father is a police officer which facilitated such happening…long story short the case was thrown out. I don’t know how true that is hence why I use the word “allegedly” and have heard rumors that the same things had happened with the other accidents he was involved in. IF it is true and it was covered up that is a sign to everyone reading my comment that if your kids get into trouble let them pay the cost of it because it might just be the price they pay that help them to smarten up…don’t cover things up…again it’s alleged…

      RIP and hope the Lord welcomes him into heaven. I pray that his family can find a way to heal…it will not be easy..I know from experience but with time it will get better

    R.I.P. Carlson. I went to school with this young man and it is a shame to say goodbye so early. I have two questions… Was medical aid provided by the EMS personnel during transport to the hospital and what was the cause of death? We have to assess the reliability of our EMS services in Dominica. It is not an issue of blame but of our National safety. Are the First responders provided adequate training to deal with stabilizing a wide range of acute, life threatening injuries? It sounds like Carlson may have had an acute Pneumothorax, which explains the breathing(possibly labored) and the frothing(frothy sputum) which was described by the eyewitnesses. This is a very common injury among accident or blunt trauma patients and the medical procedure to treat this is a simple one that is taught to every EMT-B the world over. It just bothers me that this young man may have lost his life because he was not stabilized during transport to the hospital. If this is the case, we have a serious issue. There needs to be an awakening to organize and seek out answers from the government about accountability. Lack of basic medical training could affect anyone at anytime, as accidents can NEVER be avoided. Please take a look at the processes in place to train EMS personnel and maybe take it a step further to determine if they have the proper tools to assess and care for injuries during transport. I believe that grant and loan money is better utilized in saving lives that expanded roads and stadiums.

      That’s the main reason many die, ‘on the way to’ or ‘At’ the hospital. That says a LOT about training of first responders. A No-brainer literally in this day and age. We should be past that to higher basic medical standards.

      Dominica doesn’t have a hospital or decent medical treatment. I’m not sure what you all calling hospital but all I see in goodwill is a place where people go to get the wrong leg amputated or go to suffer and simply die! The government taking all the money and building palace yet they don’t even invest in decent hospital for their citizens.

      with all the question you asked,why not asked,
      how fast was he riding?
      what did he hit?
      where did he landed?
      do you think his death could have been avoided?
      my heart goes out to his family,it’s sad to loose a love one so young like that,
      but sampler, ain’t you aware of the situation in Dominica.even if you had the best EMS in NY or anywhere,do you think it would make a diffrent.
      why not make an appeal to Dominica riders and drivers to be careful on the road.
      cause when you ride like lightning, you sometimes crash like thunder.
      it hurts my heart to see our young men go this way. MAY HE REST IN PEACE.

      and i believe our road users know the flaws in out heath sector and services should use that knowledge as a guide as to the way we live and take care of our precious lives in this country. too often some person play the blame game and no one realises that every one knows our limitations and problems of all sectors in this country yet young men drink and drive , ride without helmets over speed ect ect ect. when the police start to give tickets and do traffic checks some of you same dominicans criticize and say stop hustling poor people and how thing hard and people have no money. finally each man examine himself and live a concious and cautious life style.

      To sampler, Please be informed that the firefighters are trained EMT’s. It is very critical that you give the proper information when putting in an emergency call. Also, according to your injuries, no EMT or Doctor can save your life. And Carlson’s own was very grave. (He had a huge hole in his head).

      So stop blasting the fire officers. On a daily basis, the amount of calls they respond to and the number of lives they save go unnoticed. Only when these tragic events happen, and a life is lost do we try to bring them down and not commend them for the efforts made.

      I do agree with you that much more needs to be invested into the services. Funds are needed to purchase more ambulances and much needed equipment. The ministry responsible needs to step up.

      Hats of to the firefighters going about their duties and saving lives.

    :oops: :twisted: :mrgreen: :?:I wish to sympathise with the relatives and close ones of the deceased.But i must write that most if not all of the bikers in Dominica are making a fool of themselves,that’s why they die and will die prematurely!All they wanna do is ride about the place doing nothing and for no good reason,but to flash with big gold chain like they are chained and enslaved by the useless things of this world.All they seem to be living for is vanity and to be seen!While they are so busy flashing themselves with their bike,they refuse to protect themselves with proper headgear and the likes in the event of an accident.Though i support the enforcement of the law by the police for bikers to wear safety gears like helmet,on the oter hand if the bikers refuse to protect themselves,they’ll be the ones suffering the consequences in the event of an accident.Who can’t obey will feel!Remember the police can’t be everywhere looking out for those bikers.My condolences to all those who’ve lost loved ones. :?:

    I sympathize with the family of this young man. This is one thought that never leaves the mind of parents and loved ones. It has been 10 years for me and the memories are still very fresh in my mind. It is sad loosing a loved one in that manner. Motorcycles are not safe, there is no protection at time of an accident. I discourage riding motorcycles.

    December 23, 2012

    I spympathize with the family of Carlson. May the Lord be with you during grief and give you peace. Don’t think me negative, but i couldn’t help but take my mind back to when Carlson had this quick black Honda car, when he killed a young man in a collision near the deep water harbor, when he passed through the windscreen. Later, when the matter was at court, the police file mysteriously disappeared. The case was struck off for want of prosecution i believe, and the family of the deceased, at that time, never saw justice. Could this have turned back at Carlson? But as one person c ommented , with this wide road, why should you have been so fast after past experiences, and what could have went wrong that night. Anyway, I just hope Carlson made it right with the Lord, before last Night.

        If someone is playing chicken in the road and gets knocked down is it the driver’s fault?

        If he asked her too pay him then that was wrong on his part.

        But I don’t understand how you can rejoice at someone else’s demise. You people are pure EVIL.

    What do they think this is … the Autobahn? These riders/drivers need to act more responsible. No amount of speed in Dominica can get you where you need to go fast enough and in enough time! And it’s about time laws are passed/enforced about wearing protective gear (helmets, seatbealts, etc). Dominica’s roads are not suited for daredevil motorcyclists. And that so-called improved Roseau-Portsmouth highway will just see many more of these fatalities. Sad, really sad.

      It is reported “About 15 minutes later an ambulance came and he was transported to hospital”. How did you deduce from this that it took the ambulance 15 minutes to arrive since the article does not say when the call was made for an ambulance? Unless you were the one who made the call, you don’t know whether the call was made 5 minutes prior to its arrival.

      So what if the ambulance was on another call?In any case between getting ready and getting there should take about roughly 10 mins so 15 mins ain’t that bad!Smh!Even if the ambulance was on scene as the incident occurred,he would still have not survived.Some Dominicans are always quick to find someone to blame.Stupes.If the ambulance had arrived in 2 mins then you all would say is the nurses and doctors who were at fault and how our hospital this and that.

      and what would the helmet have done in his case and many of the other motorcycle deaths? Helmets only protect the head not the necks, or the chests and many other vital body parts.

    • Malgraysa
      December 22, 2012

      Amen brother! You ever see a traffic patrol on the roads checking all that? How about random stopping of motorbikes for a start to make sure they have license, are insured, wear protective gear and… the riders are the legitimate owner? Where are all the police we have?

      You don’t blame the police for a driver’s lack of responsibility. Every rider knows wearing a helmet just might save your life just as a driver knows how vital the seat belt can be. That’s like giving a person a ticket for having sex without a condom and the person already knows the risks.

    • Rhatid
      December 22, 2012

      There are laws against murder and people still kill all the time,so your point is?The police has to enforce laws for people to be sensible and cautious about their own safety enough to wear protective gear then?Statistics of these types of deaths should be enough for riders to ask themselves a question.

      Some of you just post nonsense on DNO. I think it is high time all you stop living via things you see on American tv and then assume it is also applicable to DA. Does Dominica have seat belt laws? Is just so all you make noise that police don’t read people their rights – is this a Dominican requirement?? Geeze louise!! A young life has been snuffed.

    • anonymous2
      December 22, 2012

      It depends on the accident as to whether a helmet or seat belts are beneficial. In the case of motorcycle riders though, wearing a helmet is a plus in terms of providing some safety for the head if injured, however, it is no substitute for safe driving practices. There are too many reckless motorcycle riders on this island and too many impatient drivers in general. There is no fire that you need to go to, so take it easy.

    • Righteous
      December 22, 2012

      So then you all will say that the police though have nothing better to do. Brother-man, if you know that you are going to die if you crash with no helmet, why do you need someone to harass you for not wearing one….Would you pull a trigger of a loaded gun to your head?

      Probably there need to be more enforcement, but you can’t blame the traffic cops for that one brother…

      I am not saying that he is not, but how do you know that he is with the Lord? Only those who die in Christ is with Him. When Dominicans are told about Christ they oppose such and think that they can do whatever they want and when they die, everyone thinks they are automatically with the LORD. Only those who die in Christ will RIP.

        @ Rasta, The bible is clear. Only those who are saved will be with God after they die. “Waitukubuli” comments is not judging but simply stating the fact. And I’ll go further to say that given Carlson’s lifestyle while he was a live it is had for me to say that he died in Christ.

      • waitukubuli
        December 24, 2012

        Rasta, Sofla, grell and disturbed, if you know what it means to “judge” you would notice there is nothing judgmental about my comments. I never said that he is with or in the absence of the LORD. Since beautiful said with certainty that “he is with the LORD”, it is necessary that people know those who died in Christ will be the only ones who will make it to heaven (Thus it is written). Usually, people do not like to hear the truth, they love to be soothed with glittery words.

        I hope you all will be ready when that time comes (I pray it is a very long time from now).

I do not think that you considered them because you were so eager to lash out at a dead man, so eager to laugh in his face. So eager to be as mean as his comments regarding gays (if your post is accurate). Well, wasted energy because the deceased does not even know if time exists.

    Dis is very sad lord guide his mom as she receives this breaking news, wonder wat really caused the accident cuz the bike looks like it didn’t get much dammaged,and no sign dat it was a vehicle who hit him, he must have lost control of the bike, jus wish he didn’t go over the wall maybe he would have survived, he is in a better place now, as I was told growing up u mourn wen someone is born and wen someone dies u think of that person in a better place, just shouldn’t have happen dis way and so soon to christmas and the new year, my sympathy goes out to the rest of the family, friends and love ones

      May his soul rest in peace, but please stop using “fallen soldier” to describe people who did not serve in the millitary or live a life dedicated to others. As the parent with a child in the millitary, I’m just tired of this term being used so loosely. Show some respect.

        May his soul rest in peace, but I must agree, the use of ‘fallen soldier’ is being used very loosely and I do feel disrespected because I AM a soldier, making REAL sacrifices along with my fellow soldiers and shipmates! This is indeed a sad situation but he is in no way a fallen soldier.

    Any one who was his friend and didnt encourage him to “walk” everywhere wasnt his real friend. Mister shouldnt have been driving/riding/cycling/skateboarding/unicyling/roller blading…..
