Six-year-old Perishes in Spanish Lookout Mishap

A six year old boy from Spanish Lookout also tragically lost his life over the weekend. Elam Penner was along with his father and siblings when he perished at about four o’clock on Sunday afternoon. The boy’s father, Walter Penner, set out on a tow-head to deliver corn within the community. Penner reportedly parked his trailer on top of a pit and proceeded to unload the corn. That’s when his son fell into the pit. The child cried out for help, was pulled out of the pit and rushed to the Belmopan Hospital. The six year old, however, succumbed.
