Scene of the stabbing.

Fifteen-year-old Felicity Florton, who was brutally stabbed by a former schoolmate of the George Charles Secondary School, underwent a successful surgery on Thursday.

However, the teen is still a patient of the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) of Victoria Hospital.

Florton was stabbed multiple times in Pavee, Castries by 18-year-old Stephon Joseph of  Pavee, Castries, on Thursday (June 12). She sustained 11 stab wounds, one of which ruptured her lungs.

Doctors had said the surgery would be a matter of life and death and that the teenager had a 50/50 chance of survival. The surgery was done to stop the internal bleeding.

The teen’s mother, Heather Charles, told St Lucia News Online (SNO) today (June 27) that doctors were able to locate the puncture (hole) that was causing Florton to bleed internally. Charles had expressed fear that her daughter might not survive the surgery because of her frail condition.

Charles told SNO that she is thankful her daughter underwent the surgery successfully. However, she noted that Florton is still having difficulty breathing.

“It has become even worst after the surgery was completed,” Charles added.

She said Florton has not eaten anything for the past few days. Last week she was fed small portions of liquid and semi-solid food.

It is unclear how long it could take before she recovers from the surgery.
