ROAD TOWN, Tortola, VI- St Vincent national Mr Keron Andrews, who was involved in a lone vehicle accident in Paraquita Bay, Tortola, on Friday, January 31, 2020 and was said to be in critical condition, has since been airlifted to a hospital in Trinidad, according to information on a GoFundMe account set up to raise some $25,000 for Mr Andrews.

The GoFundMe account was created on Tuesday, February 3, 2020, by someone called Nea Lily Talbot.

"Keron Andrews is a kind soul who was involved in a terrible car accident on January 31, 2020. He has been fighting for his life in the Dr D. Orlando Smith Hospital, Tortola, BVI and was able to be airlifted to Southern Medical in Trinidad on February 4, 2020," the details on the Go Fund Me page said.

Today, "February 5, 2020, is Keron's 30th birthday. He continues to fight for his life and has a long process of surgeries ahead of him before he can begin to recover," Talbot stated.

‘A good man’

Mr Andrews has been described as a 'good man, son and a friend to so many.'

"The financial burden of this long road will be too much for him and his family to overcome alone. Please consider donating any amount you are able. Your help will allow Keron to come out of this stronger and able to return to a life he was just beginning," it added.

At 7:00am on February 5, 2020, the GoFundMe account had raised $2045 of its $25,000 goal.

      Really where is this coming from now this is nonsense. A man is fighting for his life and this is the best to be said. Why not say you will pray for him and wished him a speedy recovery, people the best of people.

        If you never been in a position where you needed the help from your insurance or NHI stop talk what you don't know. NHI con ppl into paying something they got no access to when need help when a major incident or procedure needs to be done they say you ran the limit, which is pure BS!! Tortola needs to shape up ppl are paying insurance and taxes to dont get nothing back in return, talk bad about America all you guys want but this the place to be.

    Blaming NHI is not true once you meet all the requirements I know they are doing everything possible to help patients when they have to seek treatment overseas but you first have to consider are the monthly contributions up to date.Never have any problem and I am sure a lot of people can attest to that just speak the truth and stop the blame game they are struggling but they are doing their best

    The bike riders are still up and down riding with no helmets despite these fatalities. One was seen yesterday riding up by CTL bike up in the air, going down Duffs Bottom standing and riding. Come on man, how many more have to die. The future is the youth but the youth dies not care. But parents are left holding their stomachs and scraping their life savings to help the youth.

        They are just a set of mindless ppl, with nothing to contribute to the country, ppl need understand in life if that's the passion of the person riding bikes, sailing boats, flying planes or working on top roof tops, it's their life they know the danger
