Fire victim shows improvement

Twenty three year old burn victim Lynette Stoute has shown some improvement.

Stoute, the mother of three, suffered first degree burns to 83 per cent of her body as a result to a fire at her Diamond Valley, St. Philip home last Thursday.

Public Relations Officer in the Royal Barbados Police Force, Inspector David Welch, told Barbados TODAY via telephone yesterday that Stoute had been deemed “fit enough to travel”.

“She has passed the 38 hour critical period,” he said and “she will leave the island [shortly]”.

Sister Jacqueline, who have taken responsibility of Stoute’s children, is also reporting improvements. She said that the original plans for her sister to travel to Miami to receive treatment had to be changed because they had no space for her. However she is now receiving treatment at a hospital in Panama.

“It is a very efficent hospital and they have already started to access what is neccessary. She is in stable condition but still critical,” she said

Family members have asked Barbadians to continue to pray and keep the young mother in their thoughts.

An account is to be opened soon to raise funds to assist with her treatment overseas.

Stoute was burnt last Thursday when she re-entered the burning house in an attempt to rescue children she believed were inside but who later turned out to be safe. (KC)
