ABACO | Bahamas Press is reporting that more than 200 victims could be officially declared dead in Abaco alone in the aftermath of Hurricane Dorian.
Piles of bodies are being left alongside the road and in the bushes of Abaco making the island uninhabitable. With no water, power, food and proper sanitation, widespread looting has taken place and has forced a local militia to form to protect their property.
BP can confirm the Cabinet has secured body bag materials to begin the process of removing and identifying corpses all through the affected communities in the hurricane’s aftermath as catastrophic conditions worsen on the ground.
While the official death toll from Hurricane Dorian remains at 23 for now, Health Minister Dr. Duane Sands projected that the final count will be “staggering”, as he revealed that additional morticians are being flown into Abaco and Grand Bahama to embalm the bodies that authorities have limited capacity to accommodate.
However, Dr. Sands said the government will bring in additional refrigerated coolers to properly store the dead.
We report yinner decide!
Why did you feel the need to show the dead body floating in the water? I think there are other ways to get your point across. Common courtesy and respect for the persons living relatives and friends would have been nice.
I agree…have some compassion…STOP SENSATIONALIZING…sicko😡😡
I agree. We already know its a major disaster with lives lost, etc…. Ugh😒
Thank you! Immediately when I saw the body I i thought, what if it were my family that image would be etched in my memory forever.
What if it was their family, would they show the body then. This is horrible from every angle
Look at Bahamas Facebook news they dont care over there. They have nothing but murder on their fb news and even video of a guy shot in the head murdered and dead bodies being rolled into minivans
This is wrong on so many levels. Have some respect for these people who lost their lives and their families.
Please don’t show the dead like that, it’s not cool at all. Give them respect!
Absolutely disrespectful to show the bodies of the victims. You can express the severity of the situation without these images.
Im glad the faces are not shown. This gives us an idea of how severe the issue is and I really appreciate it. Im sad but we need to be aware of the suffering and it will cause affirmative action
