The doctors had to remove the oxygen from him just to get to clean out (the blood) from the mouth…. If I’m bleeding, by right you should have been able to be replacing that blood… But the fact remains that because (the hospital was) not… equipped, you know, it (cost him his) life,” she told Guyana Times.This aunt detailed that it was at exactly 07:26h when her nephew took his last breath. She said the police arrived at the hospital shortly after, as the driver of the motor car was being treated for minor injuries. He was subsequently discharged into police custody to assist with investigations.The late Corwin Anderson was described as the “street live wire” by relatives and friends, who sought to describe how jovial a person he had been. He leaves to mourn his reputed wife, seven siblings and other relatives and friends. (Ramona Luthi)last_img read more
