A Soufriere man whose intestines were exposed after he fell from a tree yesterday, Wednesday, Sept. 4, 2013, is now in stable condition in hospital.

Reports are that Cecile Gaston, a middle-aged man, of Fond St. Jacques climbed a breadfruit tree and fell into some bamboo trees.

During his fall, it is reported that one of the bamboo ripped his stomach area exposing his intestines.

He underwent emergency surgery at St. Jude’s Hospital at about 3:30-4:00 pm yesterday.

Sources say the man is now responsive.

At about midday today reports surfaced that Gaston had succumbed to his injuries but medical sources dimissed the reports.

“It was another man who died and everyone thought it was him,” the source said.

Though Gaston lost a lot of blood, he is expected to make a full recovery barring any serious complications, sources say.
