[www.inewsguyana.com] – It was certain horror for some vendors of the Stabroek Market, downtown Georgetown, on Saturday afternoon when they heard a loud crack and sections of the roof caved in above their heads.
Poles, rusted zinc and other forms of rusted debris characterized the scene behind the market when iNews arrived at the scene.
One vendor explained that just after 16:20hrs, she heard a loud noise but thought little of it until debris started to rain on her stall a few seconds later.
She explained that she was scared to the extent that she remained transfixed in one particular spot until some boat operators came to her rescue.
The vendor said she is thankful for her life but would like for the officials to remedy the situation since it will affect her business in the coming days.
The infrastructure of the Stabroek Market has suffered many breaches over the last months with a pump failure that led to a sudden flooding of the market last month.
