Negril Police Probe Sudden Death of 5-year-old Student        

Jamaica News, Westmoreland: The Negril Police in the parish of Westmoreland have now commenced a probe into the sudden death of a 5-year-old male student who died while travelling to school in a motor vehicle on Tuesday morning, June 19.

Family and friends of 5-year-old Zaiden Scott who resides at a section of Orange Hill in Negril and attended the Montary All Age School are still reeling in shock at the news of his sudden passing.

Tanya McIntosh, an aunt of the dead student, told our news team that Zaiden had no type of medical issues and his death is still being treated in disbelief.

According to the broken-hearted woman,  Zaiden left for school shortly after eight on Tuesday morning in a taxi which transported him and other students each day.

On reaching a section of the roadway, the driver reportedly stopped to pick up other students, when one child who was also in the rear of the car informed the driver that Zaiden was not moving over to allow other students to board the vehicle.

The driver turned around to ask the 5-year-old child to move over and that was when he discovered that he was motionless.  It is further stated that the driver asked for the assistance of a plainclothes officer who was standing in the vicinity and Zaiden was rushed to the Savanna-la-mar hospital where he was pronounced dead.

The family members are now saying Zaiden who was very vibrant and very playful never had a medical history.  In the meanwhile, the Negril police are now reporting that they will have to wait for a Post-mortem examination in order to effectively move forward with the investigation.

News of the 5-year-old student’s death has come days after the gruesome discovery of a 9-year-old female student who was found dead in another community in the parish of Westmoreland.
