Boy dies after Huis t’ Dieren accident

A four-year-old boy is now dead and his father seriously injured after they were involved in an accident on Saturday afternoon.

This newspaper was told that 32-year-old Lambert Benn was towing his four-year-old son Delon Henry on a bicycle along the Huis t’ Dieren Public Road, Essequibo Coast when the accident occurred. Benn was reportedly at a wedding house a few houses away from his home. He then left, taking his son along on the bicycle when according to eyewitnesses he collided with the back wheel of a Guyana Power and Light vehicle.

Both Benn and his son were picked up and rushed to the Suddie Public Hospital and Henry was said to be in a critical condition at that point. On Saturday afternoon, doctors at the Suddie Public Hospital were considering air-dashing Henry to the Georgetown Public Hospital for further treatment as a result of the seriousness of his injuries. The child succumbed to his injuries yesterday morning. His father remains a patient at the hospital.
