Tiffany Felicien, the younger sister of Lisa Felicien who died in a vehicular accident in Bexon Friday, Nov. 30, is no longer in critical condition, according to reliable sources.
According to reports, Tiffany, 23, of Ravine Chabot, Castries, sustained a broken arm, both legs were broken, bruises and internal bleeding.
Police reports earlier today stated her condition as “critical”, the same condition as the two other survivors of the accident, but relatives say she has now been stabilised.
This comes as welcome news to many St. Lucians after false rumours circulated like wild fire today that Tiffany had also succumbed to her injuries.
St. Lucia News Online (SNO) was initially inundated with queries about the authenticity of her reported demise, but our news team eventually confirmed that she is still alive.
SNO also understands that Tiffany is unaware that her sister has passed, and the family is asking the public for privacy in this difficult time.
Tiffany’s older sister, Lisa Felicien, who celebrated her 34th birthday just yesterday, Nov. 29, succumbed to her injuries at 4:20 a.m. – about two hours after the accident – at Victoria Hospital.
According to police, a white Suzuki Swift motor, registration number HA 7574, driven by Lisa, veered off the right side of the road and slammed into a wall. The accident took place between 2:00 and 2:30 am on the Bexon public road.
Parts of the mangled car had to be cut in order to remove its occupants.
The other occupants in the vehicle – 26-year-old entertainer Lance Montoute aka Mac 11 of Ravine Chabot, Castries and 23-year-old Kernetta Fontenelle of Cas En Bas, Gros Islet – were admitted in critical condition.
Media reports say both legs of Montoute were broken while Fontenelle is paralyzed from the neck down and will be flown overseas for spinal and neck injuries.
SNO understands that the four were heading home from a party held at Gaza, a club and bar in Bexon, when the accident occurred.
