Tuesday, October 20th, 2015. BMG: There are disturbing reports coming out of Corozal Town, where a four-month-old baby is lucky to be alive after being thermal fogged and mistreated at the Corozal Community Hospital.
BMG was informed that sometime this afternoon, members of the Vector Control Unit (VCU) visited Guadalupe Government School where flood-victim families are being sheltered. The purpose of their visit was to conduct thermal fogging for mosquitoes.
BMG was made to understand that the members of the VCU informed the family members of their purpose and did not realize that the four-month-old baby was hanging by the door in her bouncer.
The baby was rushed to the hospital where, according to the mother, the medical team hesitated to assist the family.
This is a developing story and we will have more as information is made available to us.
