Young girl hurt during village street jam


An eight-year-old girl was rushed to hospital yesterday, with an injury to one of her ankles following an incident that occurred during the Whit Monday J’ouvert in Pigotts Village.
Amia Phillip of Pigotts was transported to Mount St John’s Medical Centre via ambulance after she fell off the truck that was transporting the music for the event.
Police reported that at about 9:30 am, the child was trying to climb onto the truck as it made its way through the village on St Marks Drive.
The report further stated that she slipped, fell, and injured her leg when she landed on the road.
The Emergency Medical Services were summoned to the scene and the child was accompanied to the hospital by an aunt.
Police said initial reports indicate that Phillip may have fractured her ankle from the fall.
The child’s injury did not stop the frolicking of those in attendance, as the street jam continued. Lawmen said they allowed the festivities to end at 11 am, as had been previously planned, because the truck was not responsible for the young girl’s injury.
