Parents in shock over daughter’s death
The father of the young woman who collapsed and died at her St George home Sunday says his daughter was not suffering from any illness known to the family.
Sada Watts, 24, of Redland, was an employee of City Store up to the time of her death around 3 p.m. on Sunday.
Holding Watts’ two-year-old son close to his chest, Jeffery Watts told Barbados TODAY his daughter, who went about her usual Sunday duties around the house quite efficiently before meeting her death, had no medical history.
Her mother Judy Watts, who was too distraught to speak and on the verge of tears, merely said that the way her daughter died appeared to be “so simple”.
However, though composed, her father said he too had yet to come to grips with the fact that the young woman, who he described as a focused and caring individual, was gone.
“She get up and she wash. She cut my hair and cut he [her son] hair and did her work as normal. She did everything like normal and she didn’t say she was feeling sick or anything,” Watts said during the brief interview.
Meanwhile, young and old residents, some of who assembled outside their homes, spoke about what a “lovely young lady” the deceased was. They said she was not one to get into trouble and definitely loved her son whom she had high hopes and dreams for.
“Up to Saturday I see her and I say to her, ‘you look very sweet’. Then look what happen yesterday. I don’t even want to think about it. That child just gone,” an elderly resident said.
