The unexpected death of Supt. Alton Alvarez

Alton Alvarez

The Police Department is tonight grieving the death of one of its own. Superintendent Alton Alvarez, the officer commanding Intermediate Southern Formation, died unexpectedly on Friday night in Independence. Forty-five year old Alvarez had complained of chest pains and was taken to the Independence Polyclinic and released. But on the way home, accompanied by his son and common law wife, he complained of shortness of breath and died. Alvarez was pronounced dead at eleven p.m. and his body has since been transported to the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital. He will be laid to rest later this week.

    Don’t we have medical doctors who are able to diagnose correctly the onset of a heart attack? This man had the classic symptoms according to the media report. Did this happen to Max Samuels and many others whose lives could have been saved? Belize has fall apart at every level of society. So how does the GOB spend $1 billion in its budget each year for the past six(6) years–$ 6 billion. That’s a lot of panades and tamales. But, yes, GOB will continue to tax us Belizeans excessively pulling us down into deeper depression. Barrow keeps doing the same things, making the same errors and expect different results. We Belizeans are crazier than he is to allow this debacle to continue.

    The doctors should be ashame of themselves sending this young man home. This young man had the symptom of a heart attack, he should have never been sent home. I do not have a degree in the medical field but just common sense, this young man should have been kept overnight for observation. Are the doctors saying there is no medical machinery to have monitor this young mans heart. Shame, shame shame. If this incident was in america a lawsuit would be waiting to be filed. When are we going to have good doctors in our country? From when I was a child we did not have good doctors, now I am a grown woman and will be retiring in a few years, I will be looking at other option not to go home to retire, this is very scary. I hope the hospital and the doctor who sent Alton home should be held accountable.
