Sunday, April 20, 2014. PATRICK E. JONES Reporting: No one was seriously hurt this afternoon when a portion of a dock in Caye Caulker village broke, throwing some people into the Caribbean Sea.

The dock belonging to one of the water taxi operators, appears to have buckled under the weight of the many people who were standing up waiting to board their boat for a trip back to Belize City around 4:45 pm.

    Last year it was Tackle box, this year it is Caye Caulker, some how, the people concern keep find ways and means to get around doing the right thing. It will not be too long before we start to record deaths from poorly constructed structures, structures that are not inspected, especially for the occasion, boats without life jackets or the passengers wearing the proper life jackets, structures burning down from poor electrical wiring and the list goes on. When will we take these things serious. These are warnings and near misses, fatalities are next.
