Thirty-year-old Sherry Europe, of Little Diamond, East Bank Demerara (EBD) was on Sunday night crushed to death after one of the walls in her home caved in.
Inews understands that the house in which she lived was under construction and at the time of the incident, she was home alone.
From all indications, the woman was about to take a bath when a wall in that room fell on her, presumably breaking her neck.
Her body was reportedly discovered about 22:00hrs by her uncle who went to check on her.
The uncle told this publication that he went to his niece’s home to check on her as was his custom because she lived alone.
However, after several calls and no response, he decided to enter the house through a window.
“When I came into the house, it was very dark, but I kept calling for her but still no response. But when I came to this corner and I looked into the bathroom, I saw the fallen wall so I told my friend that was with me to shine a light and when he did I saw her lying there under the wall with her hands trying to block it.”
“The wall was on her neck and it looked as if it broke her neck,” her uncle explained in distress.
The Police were summoned to the scene.
Europe was described as a very loving individual who mostly kept to herself.
“She is a very nice girl, very nice. You would find her on her phone most of the time and when she is not, she usually keeps to herself,” the uncle related.
This online publication was told that the young woman was overseeing the construction of the house which belongs to her mother who resides overseas.
