St Michael family grieves sudden death of loved one


It was a gloomy Sunday for the Yearwood family of Brownes Avenue, Bayland, St Michael.

In fact, members of the household say Sunday evenings will never be the same following the sudden death of their loved one, David Yearwood.

David Yearwood collapsed and died on Saturday

Yearwood, 44, collapsed and died yesterday while on his customary evening stroll in the neighbourbood.

When Barbados TODAY visited the grieving family, relatives were still in shock.

His mother, Eugina Yearwood, said she was still trying to come to grips with the untimely passing of her son.

“I just can’t believe he is gone. He was good when I last saw him. He went to work as normal, he was in good spirits when he came home and he went for a walk. Next time I saw him I was identifying his body,” his mother said in disbelief.

She described her son as, “a very friendly guy,” saying, “he never really used to talk much. He was also so peaceful.”

His sister Noelle said life would never be the same for her and brothers, Adrian and Steven.

She shared that David’s voice was noticeably absent from the house and that was the most difficult.

“We all used to hang out here on Sunday evenings, laugh, have a drink and just talk. If he were here the house would be so lively. But today it’s just gloomy man. We are trying to cope but it’s really hard. ” she said, while her brothers listened in on the conversation.

David leaves to mourn three children – two girls and one boy. (DB)

    What is really going on? These cannot be merely coincidences. What are these young men eating or drinking or doing in common ? Let us have a scientific investigation.

    There seems to be something here that needs investigation. Is it normal for so many people to be collapsing dead in the same locale?
    The Ministry of Health needs to get on top of this and let us know whether there is something we’re doing that is threatening our existence.

    To me looking at this Photo that accompanies this story, Davis seems to be carrying a Blue Towel in his Right Hand, this could very well mean that he perspires profusely, snd uses that towel to wipe away the perspiration, After having noted the Temperatures that Barbados has been having recently, does anyone think that perhaps DEHYDRATION is probably the Culprit here.

    Water is the MOST Important Body Fluid, The average human adult male is approximately 69% water, by weight.

    obese people are as little as 45% water by weight.

    But!!!! The Only way to know conclusively what is actually going on, it to have AUTOPSIES conducted on the Bodies of ALL the persons who have DROPPED Dead in Barbados Recently. and the Coroner Has the AUTHORITY to Call these Autopsies.

    May the souls of ALL the Recently departed persons, Rest in Peace.
    My sincerest Condolences go out to their Families.
