By Jeff Trotman
A farmer died on Thursday, hours after he was struck to the head during a row at Moblissa along the Soesdyke/Linden Highway.
Davanand Daniels, 37, of Moblissa was hit on the head by a friend, identified only as “Victor,” and his widow, Lynette, yesterday said that he might have lived if he had been rushed to a hospital immediately after the assault.
However, the woman said her now deceased husband was left lying in a pool of his own blood for hours after the assault, which occurred in a shop in the community. He later succumbed at the Linden Hospital. The suspect fled when police were called about the assault but later turned himself in at the Amelia’s Ward Police Outpost.
