Police thank rescuers who tried to save baby boy after car went overboard

The Bermuda Police Service has extended its condolences to the family and loved ones of the child who lost his life in a car accident yesterday.

Police also thanked those who helped in the rescue efforts during the incident that took place at about 9.20am in Shark Hole, Hamilton Parish.

A spokeswoman for the BPS said: “The BPS would like to extend our sincerest condolences to the family and loved ones of the young child, who tragically lost his life in a collision.

“Additionally, we would like to thank the brave members of the community, the Works and Engineering crew and first responders who selflessly entered the waters to rescue the occupants of the submerged vehicle.

“The BPS also recognises the severity of such a traumatic event may impact the mental health of those who assisted at and witnessed this collision. We urge you to reach out and speak to someone who can help you to cope with any post-traumatic stress that may arise.”

Police also appealed to any witnesses of the crash or anyone who arrived shortly after and may have recorded the rescue efforts to contact Constable Dennis Joell on 717-2221 or e-mail djoell@bps.bm as soon as possible.

Police said they will not release the name of the child who lost its life.
