A four-month-old baby and his one-year-old brother miraculously escaped injuries when their home came crashing from its seven-foot high pillars to the ground amidst heavy winds at Ann’s Grove, East Coast Demerara yesterday.
The children’s grandmother, Ann Daly, 45, was with them when the incident happened around 17:25 hours.
She said she and the boys were relaxing in bed when she felt her house swaying. After she realized what was about to happen, she desperately tried to get out of bed to run out, but it was too late.
Daly said she was not even off the bed when she felt the impact of the crash.
“Me hustling coming off the bed but before me meet off, the house done fall,” she told Kaieteur News.
Daly said she lay speechless for a few minutes and even after neighbours arrived and called her name several times, she could not even utter a word.
“Me so confused, I say de roof would’a come down too, if ah mek one more step.”
“Nothing at all me nah seh (did I say)… Me didn’t even know what fuh do,” she added.
She said that within minutes a neighbour, Maxon Adams, rushed in through the bedroom window and passed the children to others who had arrived on the scene.
The woman shared the Two Friends, Ann’s Grove Village home with five of her seven children and her two grandsons.
Three of her children were out working and the other two were playing with friends nearby while she was keeping the babies.
Daly said she and her children have no place to go and up to press time no one had offered them a place to stay for the night.
