KINGSTON, JAMAICA | NOVEMBER 11, 2013 | Dancehall superstar Demarco and members of his True Gift Entertainment team have been hailed as heroes by a group of doctors attached to the University of the West Indies Hospital, following a serious car accident that almost claimed the life of a woman on Saturday Night.
The incident unfolded on Saturday, November 9th in the vicinity of Burlington Avenue and Westminster Road while Demarco and his team were engaged in a game of football at their studio compound. Amidst the game a loud crashing noise was heard; upon further investigation it was discovered a Honda Civic motorcar with four females and a Toyota Corolla Station Wagon taxi was involved in a serious collision that left one of the four woman with a fractured skull; others with neck and back injuries and the taxi operator in a dizzy state.
Demarco and his team quickly rushed to the scene pulling the victims from the wreckage while other members of the team alerted the authorities. With blood gushing everywhere and the cries for help a towel was used to wrap the head of the victim with the fractured skull, before whisking her into Demarco’s car and rushing to the hospital, she appeared to be slipping in and out of consciousness.
She was taken to the Andrew’s Memorial Hospital, where they advised they could not help due to lack of required resources. With no time to waste they then took her to the University of the West Indies Hospital where doctors quickly whisked her away later advising Demarco and his team that if it was not for their quick action she could have died on the scene. The other victims were subsequently taken to the hospital by police personnel.
Alluding to onlookers arriving on the scene and videotaping, a seemingly distressed Demarco later tweeted, “Why people so cruel, how can you see a woman dying, blood gushing from her head and be filming big up my team for taking her to the hospital”.
