Former P.M. resting in stable condition

Story PictureFormer Prime Minister, Manuel Esquivel is said to be resting and is in stable condition at the Belize Medical Associates. The former P.M. was scheduled to fly via air-ambulance to Miami today for reconstructive facial surgery but there have been delays in his departure which, according to information to News Five, has to do with the counterpart hospital in the U.S. The sixty-eight year old Senior Financial Advisor to the Government who holds Ministerial Rank sustained broken bones in the face, a broken left shoulder and a broken jawbone when his vehicle ran off the road early Monday morning as he headed for work. Esquivel was being driven by William Schnarr, en route to Belmopan. Upon reaching mile thirty-one on the Western Highway, just past the entrance of Mahogany Heights, his vehicle slid off the road, for about two hundred metres, hit a culvert and flipped several times. While Schnarr received a cut wound to his head, the former Prime Minister was not that lucky. Esquivel was transported to the Western Regional Hospital after which he was flown to the Belize Medical Associates and will now be taken to the U.S. for surgery. Shnarr, meanwhile has been released from the K.H.M.H.
