A freak accident of sorts has left a primary school student dead and his mother hospitalized in the north. Police say that a wall collapsed on top of the mom and her eleven-year-old son but the boy didn’t survive the incident. It happened around three-thirty on Saturday afternoon. ACP Joseph Myvett has the details:
