Minister of Local Government Expresses Sorrow at Tragic Death of Toddler in St. Mary

Minister of Local Government and Community Development Honourable Desmond McKenzie has expressed sorrow at the tragic death of three year old Kadjahni Falconer, who perished in a fire over the weekend at Mason Hall in St. Mary, and the injuries suffered by his father, who is a member of the Jamaica Fire Brigade, as he entered the burning building in an attempt to save his son’s life.

The incident occurred Sunday, April 26.

“There are hardly any words that I can say in circumstances such as this…to lose your child is utterly painful. It is very clear that his father, who is now in hospital, did everything he could to save his life. We, the family of the Jamaica Fire Brigade and the Ministry of Local Government and Community Development, mourn with him, the rest of his immediate family and friends. We will be reaching out to offer support through this extremely traumatic experience.”
