    This back road should be condemned immediately. this is risk taking. The bus drivers are hard headed. They put passengers life at risk and they think they are doing the best.Especially when it rains, the road collapses piece by piece and that is very scary. So i am saying to the ministry of public works to please condemn this road with immediate effect.
    wishing the victims a speedy recovery because i know it is not an easy road.

    Hope they are doing well. Why do they always have to be transported to roseau, all the hospitals should have good doctors and nurses as well as equipments for there area

      Again… people are stupid…

      The whole phone capturing videos thing comes from idiots (Americans) and people just imitating the actions of other stupid people…

      Instead of assisting a person from a dire situation, it is now more favorable to post it on that vile social media, just to gain some form of popularity…

      Live your drone lives still… idiots!

      Unfortunately, that’s how it is in the states. People will grab their phones to record, instead of calling 911 or jumping in to help. It’s disappointing that this trend is in D/ca too.
