He lost a very large amount of blood, so he received lots of transfusion… The surgeon also had to remove his right kidney, and his left kidney function is being monitored closely. “Up to news production time, no one was reported arrested for the crime.The Ministry of Tourism said, “We are shocked and saddened regarding the incident that occurred on one of our islands, in the early morning of June 23, involving a visitor to the destination. He and his family continue to be in our thoughts and prayers while doctors continue to monitor his recovery.A criminal act, whether against a resident or visitor, is never something taken lightly and there is a heightened and concentrated effort to identify the individual(s) responsible. The Turks and Caicos Islands are a popular and peaceful destination known for its pristine beaches and relaxed atmosphere and this type of occurrence sends a ripple through the entire community. The safety, of all those on the islands, are always our top priority and remains as such.  The Ministry of Tourism is in complete cooperation with our acting police commissioner who has increased visible security.  We ask that everyone cooperate with authorities as needed.” Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Electricity Cost of Service Study among the big agenda items at September 11 Cabinet meeting Related Items:#magneticmedianews Recommended for you #MagneticMediaNews The Luxury of Grace Bay in Down Town Provo ALERT # 2 ON POTENTIAL TROPICAL CYCLONE NINE ISSUED BY THE BAHAMAS DEPARTMENT OF METEOROLOGY THURSDAY 12TH SEPTEMBER, 2019 AT 9 PM EDTlast_img read more
