Police chief’s support for baby Iziah

Commissioner of Police Stephen Corbishley paid a well-wishing visit to baby Iziah Freeman at the Nicklaus Children's Hospital in Florida.

Iziah, who is eight months old, is battling rare genetic disorder Costello syndrome, which can result in heart, eyesight and dental problems, poor growth, weak muscles and skeletal abnormalities.

Mr Corbishley was in Miami to take part in meetings with the Association of Caribbean Commissioners of Police.

A Bermuda Police Service spokesman said: “During his visit Mr Corbishley expressed the BPS family's unwavering support and he also communicated the general BPS sentiment of love and well wishes.”

A crowdfunding appeal for Iziah has raised more than $25,000 so far but the community has been urged to keep supporting the ongoing efforts to meet medical costs.
