Four persons – two children and two adults – remain hospitalised after they were brutally chopped by a 15-year-old relative on August 16 at Bat Creek, Pomeroon River in Region Two.
Regional Commander Crystal Robinson told this publication that the four persons are in a stable condition and are recovering.
She was, however, unable to say whether the children are still in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU).
