By BBN Staff: It has been widely circulated on social media but we can now confirm that a soldier lost one of his eyes in a fall.
It happened while the officer was on duty yesterday morning at the Forward Operating Base at the Sarstoon Island.
Private Fidel Williams was unhitching a boat to go on patrol when he slipped and fell into the water.
Unfortunately he fell on a steel that was in the water which penetrated his left eye socket. He was transported to Punta Gorda and then airlifted to Belize City where he remains hospitalized.
