Double-death agony


Share post:

THE DESPERATE CRIES for help from 82-year-old Barbara Forde from inside her burning home will forever haunt the residents of 1st Avenue, Alleyne’s Land, Bush Hall, St Michael.

Late Saturday night, Forde’s timber and concrete house, which she shared with her 53-year-old son Carlton Forde, was destroyed by fire.

They both perished in the blaze, the origin of which remains unknown.

When a DAILY NATION team visited the neighbourhood yesterday, the scent of smoke still lingered in the air, the charred remains of Carlton’s white taxi remained at the scene, and the solemn looks on the faces of many of the neighbours told the tale of the tragedy that took place just hours before.(DB)
