Tragedy has struck the West Bank Demerara community as an altercation between two teen friends over a girl has left one in the hospital on life support and the other on the run from police.
According to Odessa Adolph, the mother of 18-year-old Joshua Faerber of No.2 Canal, West Bank Demerara, she received a phone call from staff at the Georgetown Public Hospital Corporation (GPHC) on Wednesday at around 15:00hrs, informing her that her son had been brutally stabbed and that she was needed immediately.
