(Trinidad Express) The Trinidad and Tobago Defence Force and Coast Guard have been at the helm of a dramatic rescue of a family of four, including two small children, who lived in a car for four days after their home in Dominica was destroyed last Monday by Hurricane Maria.
Trinidadian Stephan Subero, his wife Sara and their children Skyla, 5, and Sadiel, 18 months, were first reported as missing following Maria’s devastating pass last Monday night.
Relatives who had not yet been in touch with the family, but were told they had survived, went ahead and started a relief fund for them.
But the quartet were finally found on Friday and, according to a post on the Facebook page of the Ministry of National Security, were “living in a car in the middle of nowhere since Hurricane Maria”.
Also involved were the T&T Coast Guard and T&T National Helicopter Services (NHS).
T&T Defence Force personnel on Friday rescued a family who had been living in a car “in the middle of nowhere” since Hurricane Maria struck Dominica last Monday night. Trinidadian Stephan Subero, wife Sara and their two children were airlifted out of the area by a Venezuelan helicopter.
