Alejandro Cowo

Sixty-one-year-old Canadian national Guy Carey Smith remains hospitalized at the Belize Medical Associates, following a boating collision in Caye Caulker on Friday night around ten o’clock.  Smith was along with his nineteen-year-old son Travis Tanner Cooper Smith in a dinghy when a vessel collided into them.  The boat is the property of Koko King Beach.  According to police, the dinghy was being operated by the father and son duo without any lights or reflectors.  The oncoming watercraft crashed into the small boat knocking the elder Smith unconscious and leaving him with a small cut wound to the right elbow.  Assistant Superintendent Cowo says the incident is being looked into by personnel from the Belize Port Authority.

Guy was initially transported to the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital, before being relocated to the Belize Medical Associates.  He remains in critical condition.
