first_imgAn Industry, East Coast Demerara (ECD) family is mourning the death of a 10-year-old boy who mysteriouslyDead: Yogindra “Shawn” Persaudcollapsed in school on Wednesday and died.The dead young man has been identified as Yogindra Persaud, called “Shawn”, a Grade Four student of Grahams Hall Primary School, in Cummings Lodge, ECD.According to information reaching Guyana Times, the lad was in his classroom eating a snack when he collapsed. Teachers rushed to his side and upon examination, found no pulse. He was picked up and rushed to the Georgetown Public Hospital where he was pronounced dead on arrival.When Guyana Times visited the child’s Lot 19 First Street, Industry, home on Thursday, his mother, Sharon Reid, related that her son left home for school in good health on Wednesday morning.The woman noted that she was at work when her daughter called and informed her that something was wrong with her son.“Like about 10:30-11:00h, my daughter called me and said something is wrong with Shawn because he is not breathing at school. So I left work to go to the school but they called and tell me that they took him to the hospital and when I reach there, the doctor called and told me that your son has died,” the distraught woman recalled.Reid noted that the doctor could not say what happened to the child since he was already dead when he arrived at the medical facility. She added that they have been getting various reports from school officials, parents and even students about what transpired.According to what she was told, Reid said her son urinated himself in class before he collapse. He was picked up and placed on a bench but fell off. It was at this time that one of the teachers checked and found that he had no pulse.“That is all the teacher told me; that is all I hear. Is different, different things you hearing from people,” she stated.The aggrieved mother noted that while her son did not suffer from any ailments, she is not holding anyone accountable for his death and is awaiting the results of the post-mortem examination which will be conducted today, to find out why her youngest of three children and only son died.At the time this newspaper was at the home of the dead child, officials from the Education Ministry were visiting to offer their condolences to the grieving family.Young Persaud leaves to mourn his parents, two older sisters and other relatives and friends.last_img read more

first_img0Shares0000Ivory Coast’s Pepe vies for the ball with Rwanda’s Emmaunel Imanishimwe © AFP / ISSOUF SANOGOJOHANNESBURG, South Africa, Mar 24 – Defending champions Cameroon, Burundi, Guinea-Bissau and Namibia secured 2019 Africa Cup of Nations places on Saturday, raising to 19 the number of qualifiers for the tournament.The remaining five places will be filled Sunday with South Africa among 11 countries hoping to make it to the June 21-July 19 showpiece in Egypt. Cameroon needed a draw from a Group B clash with the Comoros in Yaounde, but overwhelmed the Indian Ocean islanders 3-0 with captain Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting among the goals.Burundi were another side needing a point and they sealed a first Cup of Nations appearance by drawing 1-1 at home in Group C against Gabon, whose survival hopes rested on winning.Namibia celebrated wildly despite a 4-1 Group K hammering in Zambia as they pipped Mozambique on head-to-head records for a place at the expanded 24-nation tournament.Mozambique were poised to qualify when leading 2-1 in Guinea-Bissau entering stoppage time only to be undone by sloppy defending which allowed the home side to snatch a 2-2 draw.Egypt, Algeria, Ivory Coast, Ghana, Guinea, Kenya, Madagascar, Mali, Mauritania, Morocco, Nigeria, Senegal, Tunisia and Uganda had qualified ahead of the final matchday this weekend.Angola joined them Friday when they edged Botswana 1-0 to pip 2017 bronze medallists Burkina Faso for a Group I place.Ivory Coast defender Serge Aurier controls the ball © AFP / ISSOUF SANOGOAfter Paris Saint-Germain forward Choupo-Moting had given five-time champions Cameroon a half-time lead, Christian Bassogog and Clinton Njie netted in the second half.Cameroon were the original 2019 hosts, which would have guaranteed them a place, but they fell behind with preparations and Egypt took over.Cedric Amissi put Burundi ahead on 75 minutes only for Omar Ngandu to concede an own-goal soon after, creating a tense finish as Gabon sought a second goal and qualification.But the Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang-captained visitors could not unlock the Burundian defence in Bujumbura and bowed out two years after hosting the Cup of Nations.Mozambique came from behind in Bissau to equalise through Stanley Ratifo and Nelson Divrassone thought his goal with one minute remaining would be the match winner.But a Mozambican defender clumsily headed a Guinea-Bissau free-kick against his post and Frederic Mendy reacted quickest to tap in the rebound.That left Namibia as possibly the happiest 4-1 losers in African football history as they finished level on points with Mozambique, who they beat home and away last October.Ivory Coast, Ghana, Mali and Senegal won matches that had no bearing on qualification and Niger fought back to draw 1-1 with record seven-time African champions Egypt.On Sunday, former champions South Africa must avoid defeat to qualify at the expense of Libya, whose home fixture has been moved to neighbouring Tunisia for security reasons.0Shares0000(Visited 2 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

A Gardena woman who allowed two youngsters to ride in the trunk of her car faces sentencing Jan. 11 after pleading no contest to child endangerment, a prosecutor said. Laverne Renee Dunlap, 35, entered the plea Wednesday in San Fernando Superior Court. The plea agreement calls for her to receive three years’ probation and one year in jail, Deputy District Attorney Carolyn McNary said. Dunlap had seven children in her compact car when she was stopped on the Antelope Valley Freeway around 8 p.m. May 20 in Santa Clarita, police said. Officers found a boy, 15, and a girl, 10, in the trunk, authorities said. Another driver reported seeing Dunlap’s car earlier at the side of the San Diego Freeway near the National Boulevard off-ramp, authorities said.
