    Virgin Atlantic crew member killed in accident described as “energetic and fun-loving”

    Quinton Garrathy

    A British national, killed in a vehicular accident near the Rodney Bay Marina entrance early this morning, was a cabin crew member of Virgin Atlantic airline for some 15 years.

    Quinton Garrathy, 38, from Southampton, was hit by a black Hyundai SUV, registration number PG657, as he attempted to cross the road close to 1:38 a.m. Sunday. He had just disembarked a mini-bus at the bus stop, opposite the food vans, eyewitnesses said.

    The SUV was being driven by 18-year-old Sebastien King of Gros Islet, son of the island’s lead pathologist Dr. Stephen King. Police sources say Sebastien’s insurance and driver’s license were valid.  As is customary, the teen was brought into police custody where he gave a statement and was then released. Investigations continue.

    Meanwhile, a crew member of Virgin Atlantic, speaking on condition of anonymity, told St. Lucia News Online (SNO) that Garrathy and other crew members arrived in St. Lucia on Saturday morning and stayed at Royal St. Lucia resort in Rodney Bay, Gros Islet.

    The crew member said Garrathy and others were eating and drinking around 10 p.m.-11 p.m. at the hotel. The source said four members, including Garrathy, prepared to leave the hotel for Castries, however it appeared that Garrathy left on his own.

    When asked why would Garrathy stop near the entrance of the marina, which is a good distance from the hotel, the source said the airline employee may have missed his stop and was crossing the road to head back to the hotel. The source also theorised that Garrathy may have stopped to make a purchase at one of the food vans.

    Garrathy is survived by his wife – also a crew member of Virgin Atlantic – and a three-month-old daughter. He celebrated his first wedding anniversary on July 9.

    A source said Garrathy was scheduled to leave the island on Monday, August 4 at 5:45 p.m.

    He was described as “young, energetic, fun-loving, and popular”.

    Quinton Garrathy and wife Naomi.

      Oh boy… sad situation all round. Dr. King, I hope that all will be well with your family. You are a good man and bad things do happen to good people too. As a parent with a daughter your son’s age, i could just imagine the pain your family is going through now. Please arrange some counselling for your son so he can get through this phase. To the family of the deceased, what a tragedy. I pray that the family can get through this tragedy, i pray for strength for the wife so she can raise her daughter. Hope that she has strong family support because she too will need counselling. RIP dear Quinton!! TEARS!!

      Its true drivers need to be careful, but accidents happen even if you are careful.Also, at that time of day the roads are usually not that crowded and not many pedestrians.So it looks like and unfortunate event, I am tempted to think that perhaps they only noticed trouble at the last second/s

      Dear Jean cleo,
      Why are you jumping into conclusions that Quint was out partying and had too much to drink. Just because people go out, it doesn’t mean they get drunk……. He might got off the bus where he did on purpose….. We will never know as he can’t tell us his side of the story, CAN HE!!!!!!!!!!
      As for the earlier comments, instead of pressing the horn to signal to pedestrians, you could step on the break, it’s there for a reason!!!!!!! I do feel bad for the young guy as he has to live with the thought for the rest of his life, but the mother of the 3 months old baby has to bring up that child on her own, and will have to explain to that little girl why she hasn’t got a daddy…… So who is suffering more do you think??????!!!!!!!!!! RIP Quint
      :( my thoughts are with the grieving family….

      St. Lucia needs to enforce stricter laws and penalties with regards to the speed limit in certain areas especially in residential areas and around bus stops. Pedestrians and drivers must be educated with regards to the rules of the road. Another subject which needs urgent is the drinking and driving. You attend public and private events and there is no legal time to stop the sale and/or distribution of alcohol. Alcohol is sold to to end or well after the end of these events. Rules and regulations need to be enforced with regards to a time and police should be on the roads to intercept drivers who have certain blood level aclohol limit. I see people most almost all the time drinking while driving in St. Lucia. On vacation in St. Lucia I have seen on many occasions where people drink acolhol from the beginning to the end of a public or private event, they can barely walk and is staggering then jump into a vehicle to drive home with other passengers… THIS IS DANGEREOUS. These are the issues which should be addressed.

      I use to work in the Marina and this is a very dangerous area. See the confusion below:

      Traffic heading to Gros Islet from Castries

      Traffic heading to Castries from Gros Islet.

      Traffic getting out of the Marina.

      Bus stop letting off passengers on the opposite side of the road

      Food trucks on the same side of the road as the bus stop.

      Please relocate the bus stop either higher or lower and get a more suitable place for the food trucks. There is enough crown lands available.

      It is probably a double tragedy for his wife and baby girl and also for young King.The report noted that his license and insurance checked out. If he had been drinking he would have been detained. Pedestrians make mistakes that turn out to be fatal ones. There is poor lighting and he was not at a designated crossing point , if he had dark clothing it might have been equally difficult to see him crossing. Let’s wait for the official police report before we begin to pass judgement.

        I am sorry Nanton did you say designated crossing? Please let me know the designated crossing along that road. If I’d have to think of one it would be the pedestrian crossing by the Beausejour gap. Are you saying pedestrians would have to stop there and walk down? Why are there 2 busstops opposite each other in that area if people were not suppose to cross. There are several business there as well. But really enlighten me I would like to know the designated crossings.

      It saddens my heart knowing that my dear Sebie is in such a predicament. This has nothing to do with who his father is it is jus a simple case of neglect whether on one or both sides. We don’t know cause none of us were there. I’m talking about a past student of mine who wouldn’t harm a fly. Some of us need to get off our high horse because speeding is not unique to any one mostly everyone of us participate in the act of speeding at one time or another. His actions just happened to come at a price which others seldom experience. You are in my prayers Sebie and to the family of the victim, may u find comfort in the grace of the Lord.

      Sad sad situation. To robotic feelings, as much as that may be true it is a sad situation to be in. This young man still goes to school. Imagin what his gonna face when he gets back in the next week or so. And a sad situation also for the victim family, fatherless child, widowed mother. An to JT, am gonna be frank. Thats a very foolish statement to make. Everthing u obtain a licence for is not necessaryly a weapon. U need a lisennse to run a shop, especially if it sells alcoholic beverages and you also need one to play music at some sort of large event. the list can go on and on. It all comes down to how we make use of the privileges that you have as an individual. Whatever the outcome, judges must take into consideration all the curcumstances of the situation. He should have to face some form of punishment for the situation, and one that is reasonable and fair. After all, this young man has a conscious too and that alone can do a number on an individual, facing yourself and being accused by youself. This is what you truly call an “accident” especially if he wasn’t under the influence of some sort of substance and doesn’t have a history of aggression or being reackless on the road. All persons affected by the situation, they need to get some medical help.

        Y is the chicken van a problem? The vans are not so close to the road to obstruct traffic, it is a good distance from the bus stop. So stop someone from a livelihood, cuz ppl can’t drive, or pedestrians aren’t careful?

      Really people, we need to visualize the whole scenario, six chicken vans in the road unlicensed selling food without running water. A serious hazard to all citizens and visitors alike. This was destined to happen unfortunately a tourist a father a husband. Why do we blame this poor young man, and not the authorities. They should have seen it coming. I know we must all eat and drink but this section of the road is dangerous. We forgot this is a highway and NOT a pedestrian crossing.

      My heart goes out to the both families especially to the King family, The young man has to live with this mishap. St. Lucian stop pointing fingers in people’s children, not because he is privilege. He is from a very humble family. If you know his parents they are humble people lets not cast stones.

      To all who quick to judge are you drivers. Most times the bus put the pedestrian down they dash across the road and you the other driver never see this person until its to late. We damage our vehicle destroy other people’s property to avoid that kind if accident. None of us driver’s kill any one deliberately on the road. My sympathy to the young man family . But my biggest sorrow goes out to that King boy and his family. That young man has to continue living his life with that accident in his mind. It must be the worst day in your life.

        Your biggest sorrow goes out to the young driver? The boy who has the rest of his life ahead of him?? Regardless of whether it could have been avoided or not, it is very clear that the people hurt the most by this are the family members and friends of Quinton. Not to mention his 3 month old baby who will grow up not knowing her father, who let me tell you was an incredible human being and loved by everyone. Think

        How can your biggest sorrow be for the King boy? He is not dead, he has not left behind a young wife and a three month old baby. The real sorrow should be for the poor man who has lost his life, and the dreadful unbearable heartache that his family is now going through. His child is going to grow up never knowing her father. That is a terrible terrible tragedy, just absolutely heartbreaking. My thoughts are with his wife and baby and the rest of his family and friends, not with the driver of the car. He still has his full life ahead of him, and will recover from this.

      My sympathies to his family and the crew members. Sorry to hear of this tragedy. We need to be more careful on the road and persons need to understand that your vehicle can be a weapon. The way we drive in St Lucia is ridiculous as if we are all in a hurry. Persons need to be extremely cautious at intersections, bustops, chicken vans, schools , this is why defensive driving should have an expiry date. we all need reminders

      I have to agree with JT. Drivers (especially bus drivers) in Saint Lucia notoriously drive with a sense of entitlement and a complete lack of responsibility and accountability. Most don’t even care that they are operating machinery that can potentially injure of even kill passengers and pedestrians.

      bringing sense to the debate requires that we are not too quick to rush to judgment. we have however become a society too quick to condemn or to take sides when the debate should be on how best to avoid another fatal accident like this from ever happening again. Quinton death would have not been in vain if the debate would lead to this stretch of road being improved to make it safer for pedestrians and drivers alike. my heartfelt condolences to the Garrathy family.my love especially to his wife and 3 months old daughter. may his soul rest in perfect peace.

          My comment was out of sarcasm…you noticed how the report mentioned…”The SUV was being driven by 18-year-old Sebastien King, son of the island’s lead pathologist Dr. Stephen King. Police sources say Sebastien’s insurance and driver’s license were valid. As is customary, the teen was brought into police custody where he gave a statement and was then released. Investigations continue.” Already it is painting a beautiful image of the driver…he has connections…don’t make me pull up police reports of accidents where death is involved and show you the difference…it’s easy to notice that this case is gonna be a difficult one here to close with a balance in judgement…when was the last time you read of a vehicular accident and the driver was reported on news media that his insurance and license were up to date?

        WTF – the kid is from a normal family in St. Lucia. Are you saying his family is abnormal. My goodness he is just like any other 18 year old.

        Why don’t you try to become a big boss too. What has the King family done to you? The petty jealousy is so obvious.

        If you were a loving and caring parent you would be begging God to have mercy on yours. Who knows what the future holds for you and your family?

      it’s time these drivers are held on remand for taking someone’s life…these are not just accidents…this is murder…a vehicle is a weapon that’s why you need a licence to drive one. This country is becoming notorious for this sort of ‘accidents happen’. maybe it’s time to enforce road laws, stop drunk and speeding drivers, especially at times like this when everyone on this island knows that people drink and drive and speed.

        The vehicle hit him IN THE ROAD. The vehicle didn’t leave the road and hit him. If he got off the bus and cross without looking and got hit, is the driver still to blame?

      My heart goes out to the wife and their 3 month old daughter. My Good Lord… this is so sad they was the way this young man has lost his life…. a little girl grows up without her father and a new bride without her husband…. I will keep them in my prayers. I also pray the young man pulls through as this must be a very devastating time for him and his family. this is truly heart breaking…. truly devastating….

        Extremely Sad for both families. As you said he was out partying he must have had too much to drink and wrong judgement in crossing the road. He even miss his stop. His friends should have checked on him if they noticed he had some drinks already.

          Sad attempt at prejudicing people’s opinion. Pathetic to blame a dead man who can’t defend himself.
