Dominica’s Health Minister, Julius Timothy, has been taken to Martinique by air ambulance after he collapsed on Wednesday afternoon and was admitted to hospital.
Timothy was rushed to the Princess Margaret Hospital (PMH) on Wednesday afternoon and reports indicate he may have suffered a stroke.
He was taken to Martinique early Wednesday evening from the Canefield Airport.
Prime Minister, Roosevelt Skerrit, said Timothy complained of numbness in certain parts of his body before he was rushed to hospital. “I was able to communicate with him, so at least he is alert and aware of his surrounding,” he said. “In due course the medical professionals will give an update on his progress.”
He called on all Dominicans to pray for Timothy
DNO was reliably informed that at the time of him being taken to Martinique Timothy was unable to speak.
