I am writing this blog post, first to say thanks and show deep appreciation to the persons involved in the rescue & support of my brother after his miraculous survival from his car accident, and second, to update all my peeps who were sharing their kind words.

First, the 'unnamed lady' who picked him up on the street and left him with the highway patrol police; whoever you are madam - I suspect an angel, God Bless you.

To the Duncan's police; Detective Gordon and his team, thank you gentlemen. You proved that the Jamaica constabulary force still have good, decent and compassionate men and women. First for rushing my brother to the hospital (although you admitted you weren't sure he'd live - if still alive) and secondly, to hunt down his car that neither us - (the family) and you (the police) did not find until the next day. God Bless You, and indeed all the great police officers in Jamaica!

Thirdly, to nurse Wedderburn and the team at the Falmouth hospital casualty department then. That hospital too gets a lot of stick, but it is individuals like you Ms. Wedderburn that reminds us that all is not lost. God Bless You.

This shows me that the old-time Jamaican caring and sympathetic spirit is still alive and well.

To my family; Uncle Toney and everyone else, thank you, and God Bless You too.

And for you my peeps who did not hear the entire story, well, apparently the car ran off the road on his way to home in St. Catherine; he was too tired.

The entire ordeal was a miracle; especially a) how he came out of the broken car and b) how he found himself on the road.

Call him lucky, but I believe it proves that Christ is still working wonders here on planet earth.

My brother is still recouperating after the trauma but we expect him to do well very soon.

All indications are that he will be fine. He is little fighter too; he proved it over the last few days again.

Thanks again peeps for the support; the thoughts and prayers. I tell you, you've proved to me that this site is much more than that, we have a real friendly and compassionate communit.

Thank you and God bless you too.

Fortunate to Have Survived
by: Jodi Grant

I lived in Duncan Bay (until and accident where I was crushed between my gate and my car door which left me a parapelegic and sent me out of my beloved Jamaica and back to Canada) and it did my heart good to hear that the Duncans police were so helpful. I always found them to be so and your brother's difficult situation does, indeed, reflect the Jamaica of old. It's good to know that such caring does still exist. I trust your brother will continue on the road to health. It seems he's a very lucky man!
