Rescue switched to recovery mode

It's looking like there won't be a happy ending to the Brittons Hill tragedy. The latest reports are that the sniffer dogs have detected no sign of life, while the cadaver dog has found two sites where bodies might be located.

At an 11:35 a.m. press conference, PM Arthur stated that the families of the victims had been informed that it was unlikely their loved ones had survived the cave-in. He added that the procedure would be moved from rescue to recovery with haste since a tropical wave was expected to affect the island later today.

On behalf of the Cheese-on-bread contributors, I would like to extend deepest sympathies to the families of Donavere Codrington, his wife Cassandra, and children Shaquanda, Shaquille and Yashiro. May God be with you at this time.

For the latest photos and information on this tragedy, check out Barbados Free Press and Barbados Underground. The Nations News site has crashed, probably under the weight of all the hits.

Keep safe, all.
