De Sinco owner still in ICU

De Sinco owner Frank De Abreu remains in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) of the Georgetown Hospital following an accident involving a fire tender almost one week ago, while the last of the injured firemen was discharged yesterday.

De Abreu’s vehicle was struck by the fire tender at the corner of Lamaha and Irving streets on Sunday last.

Four firemen were also injured in the accident that saw the fire tender ending up in a trench.

Injured were firemen Marlon Wilson, 42, who sustained injuries to the head, neck and face, Jamal Alleyne, 23, who suffered wounds to his right hand and ear, Hurdley Holder who was hurt to his head, left hand and eye and Kwesi Pearson. Holder was the last member of the quartet to be discharged. This newspaper was reliably informed that the man lost one of his eyes and that his hand was broken.

Meanwhile, sources said that while De Abreu’s family is planning to have him flown to the United States for treatment, he is in a too critical condition to be moved. He reportedly suffered major head injuries.

De Abreu’s vehicle was written-off after the accident.

Investigations are continuing into the matter.
