[www.inewsguyana.com] – It has been ten days since the death of 21 – year – old Roshinee Pagwah, the female tourist, who jumped off the Kaieteur Falls and her family is still battling to come to grips with the unfortunate situation.
Phagwah’s body is yet to be retrieved from the bottom of the falls; it was spotted a few days ago and according to Police Commander ‘F’ Division, Ravindradat Budhram, the young lady’s remains are in the gorge of the Kaieteur Falls which makes it all the more difficult to retrieve.
However, the family is still trying to figure out what prompted the suicidal act as they try to cope with the devastating reality. Phagwah, of Abundance Reliance East Canje, Berbice lived with her mom Indra Ramshudit and Aunt, Oma Ramshudit.
On the day of her death, she left home at around 5:00 hrs and told her mother that she was accompanying a female friend to Georgetown to clear a barrel. The aunt and mother, who are trying to cope, said that two weeks before her death, Phagwah had took time off from her job at the Guyana Power and Light Company, after complaining of being ill.
However, they both said during her time off at home, she acted normal, expressing her outgoing personality. iNews understands that the mother has been inconsolable since the death of her only child and had been suffering from fluctuating hypertension.
She visited the doctor on several occasions and despite being counseled to help cope with the unfortunate event by social workers from Berbice and Georgetown, the mother said she is still grief stricken.
According to the aunt, they did not find any clues in the girl’s room that could have explained the reason behind her death. The suicide act appeared to be a planned one as the young lady, through social media, had expressed feeling depressed.
On Instagram, she posted a photo under the caption, “Having it all & still feeling sad”. She had also used Facebook to express sadness on the fifth year death anniversary of her high school boyfriend, who had killed himself after she ended their relationship.
Many believe that the memory may have prompted the suicidal act.
