American visitor dies after falling 20 feet

Police are investigating the unnatural death of a 26-year-old American visitor, which occurred around 7:20 last night at Indian Pond, St Joseph.

The visitor, whose name has not been released, reportedly arrived here on Monday and was apparently working on a stage and lighting for Old Year’s Night celebration activities when he fell from a 20-foot scaffolding.

He was rushed to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital by ambulance where he was pronounced dead on arrival.

    As I wrote in this year’s passing parade. Live we may, die we must. He was still a young man whose number was called. Look at it this way. He died whilst helping to prepare a venue for others to enjoy themselves and ring in the new year. May he rest in peace.

    This is the brother of my sons girlfriend. I finally had the pleasure of meeting him a couple of weeks ago and he was an absolutely beautiful soul. I feel honored to have met him. Please pray for his parents, 4 brothers and sisters and for the girlfriend that was with him when this happened. So tragic
