(Jamaica Observer) KINGSTON, Jamaica — The family of Brandon and Brayden Jones are asking for privacy at this time as they come to terms with the tragic loss of the nine-year-old twin boys.
“The tragedy which unfolded yesterday has had a tremendous effect on the family emotionally and physically,” said a statement issued by Communication Consultant Chris Benjamin. “This reality has left the family shaken and as such they would like a moment to grieve away from the spotlight.”
The family thanked everyone who prayed with them since the tragic incident, and are asking Jamaicans to continue keeping them in their thoughts as they seek strength to “carry on in this dark time”.
“In due course as the family comes together, opportunities will be made available for interviews and comments,” the statement said.
The bodies of the twin boys who were washed away Monday were yesterday morning fished from the sea at the Dump-Up Beach in Montego Bay, St James.
