He was left with wounds to his head and other sections of his body. “First me think it was a girl,” Lance Brown, a man who saw him in the gully Saturday morning, told the news team.
Brown said he thought the person was dead until he went down into the gully and saw that he was still breathing.
Brown — who came upon the man in the gully around 7:30 am — called the Matilda’s Corner Police.
The man was rushed to the University Hospital of the West Indies for treatment.
Sandy Gully has factored as a migratory tributary for many populations including homeless msm/transgender so I am not surprised just perplexed; from my days sharing an apartment where the gully ran directly behind the flat and by the bridge at Marketplace (one two lane bridge then) the guys used to reside sometimes under it and knowing I lived at the complex they would walk up the gully so long it was dry and call us from in it which annoyed the hell out of me. Myself and my flat mate then the late Donald Thompson devised a pebble on the window strategy for communication and we ended up after temporarily housing a chef from Maxfield Avenue who was forcibly evicted distribute food he would take home that was unsold to the guys.
