Baby Brianna Critical After Freak Accident

There was a freak accident on Saturday evening on Mahogany Street in Belize City. Sometime around six-thirty that day, a metal gate near a newly built perimeter fence at the Samuel Haynes Institute of Excellence Compound fell atop a three year old girl, playing in the yard. Brianna Timmons is the daughter of the librarian at the Lloyd Coffin Pre-school. News Five understands that when the mother went looking for her husband, the gate collapsed on top of baby Brianna as she played in the yard with other children. Brianna received severe head injuries and is now in a critical condition. The family declined comment today, but we managed to speak to a witness who came up to the incident right and rendered assistance.

“When I di look to pass by the gate, I see the kids the play nearly close to the gate, but they noh dif ass with the gate. When I turn back from the shop, I di hear screaming. But when I hear screaming, I come back the same way how I left, but I come back I see the gate drop on the ground and I hear bawling. But when I goen close, I see the same baby weh mi deh close to the gate when I lee while left, I see the gate drop pan ahn. And so I just give assistance and help them put ahn ina the vehicle fi make ih reach the hospital. The baby got head injuries, bleeding from ih nose and ih mouth ad like ih forehead.
