Uphill task


Share post:

IT WAS THE RESCUE mission that needed to be rescued too.

Still, Caribbean heroes emerged from the rubble, destruction and death of the old French village of Petite Savanne here last night, where a five-man Barbadian-led search and rescue team, bravely assisted by six Antiguans and two Dominicans, successfully extracted the final 13 residents willing to leave the small village that was beaten down by Tropical Storm Erika last Thursday night.

The 13-member team, accompanied by two Barbadian media personnel, was forced to leave about ten residents who bluntly refused to leave their homes, forcing officials to begin rethinking their plan to get them out at some stage today.
