Four ‘heroes’ get pat from abroad

The good deeds of Barbadians Nico Hutson, Kevin Payne, Jabari Worrell and Joseph Grazette who assisted visitors Dana Chowdry and Jane Elhusainie after they were robbed on the Richard Haynes Boardwalk on January 11, have crossed borders and resonated abroad.

Digicel today presented new DL 1000 smartphones to Naru employees Nico Hutson, Kevin Payne, Joseph Grazette and Jabarry Worrell who selflessly rushed to the aid of two British visitors who were robbed on Monday. Here, they pose with Naru owners Lisa Evelyn-Taylor (right) and Barry Taylor (left), along with Digicel’s Marketing Executive Marc Messiah (centre).

Prime Minister Ralph Gonsalves of St Vincent and the Grenadines has written to the four, patting them on the back for coming to the aid of the victims.

In the letter, Gonsalves said when he read of their action in a local newspaper it reassured him that the majority of Caribbean people were good citizens.   

“Your instinctive response, collectively, reassures us yet again, that our Caribbean civilization is grounded in nobility, love and caring despite the increasing efforts of a recalcitrant minority of criminals to undermine all this by their commission of violent acts, including robbery, upon innocent persons,” the letter read.

“I applaud each of you for your instinctive goodness and humanity, reminiscent of the parable told by Jesus Christ in the Book of Luke, of the Good Samaritan, who assisted the male victim of a robbery as he was going down from Jerusalem to Jerico,” the Vincentian leader added.

The Prime Minister invited the four to “please visit me, we will break bread together” if they ever visit St Vincent and the Grenadines.

    I tremendously applaud this selfless act and the fact that they are ‘young men’ even sends the point home that not all of our young people are lost and ‘men’ can be responsible if given the resources and skills they need to take care of humanity.

    There is also a fifth hero who must be complimented for this good deed. He came forward yesterday and was one of the two who actually cornered and apprehended the assailant.
    He too should be recognised accordingly

    No “heroes” in St. Vincent, Mr. Gonsalves, that you also have to seek publicity in Barbados with somebody else’s nationals? How many other places do you poke your nose into where you are unwanted? Do you plan to retire to Barbados when you get kicked out of office in St. Vincent, or do you think you own Barbados already? Are you so “big” that your own country cannot hold your complete attention?

    Sorry to offend anyone, but this arrogant bumptious personage already personally interfered in elections in St. Kitts, as a MINORITY SHAREHOLDER has taken (devastating) personal command of LIAT, and pushed himself onto so many regional CARICOM and OECS Boards that his own citizens can no longer afford his daily travel expenses.
