House Collapses on Neal’s Pen Road, Man and His Girlfriend Need Your Help

A Belize City resident and his girlfriend are in dire straits tonight after their home on Neal’s Pen Road collapsed on Thursday morning.  Travis Myvette was at work when he received a phone call that the elevated wooden structure had crumpled into the swamp water below.  When he arrived on the scene he observed that the structure had fallen down with his girlfriend inside.  Fortunately, the young woman escaped serious injury.  While that may be so, Myvette is down and out and is seeking public assistance to get back on his feet.
