Man killed by hit and run driver while fishing near Blygezight
When 31-year old Fizul Houssein kissed his wife and left home shortly after 03:00 hrs yesterday, neither of them imagined that he would have be dead in a matter of hours.
By 05:50hrs, the 270 Silent Dam, Success resident was pronounced DOA at the Georgetown Public Hospital after a speeding vehicle slammed into him as he was fishing with his uncle in Blygezight, along the Railway Embankment.
The man’s relatives were already preparing for Houssein’s Wake when Stabroek News visited his residence yesterday morning. His uncle, Kamalelvin Houssein, with whom he went fishing, related the details of the incident.
Kamalelvin said he had asked Fizul, a driver, to accompany him yesterday morning to catch some fish. He said they left very early in the morning, and settled in Blygezight, on the Railway Embankment, some distance from Sheriff Street. The duo had already caught two Tilapia when Kamalelvin went back to the trench and cast his net again.
