Candlelight vigil for victims of Labour Day tragedy



Four Persons died following an horrific accident on Labour Day

The National Congress of Trade Unions of The Bahamas (NCTUB) and the Commonwealth of The Bahamas Trade Unions Congress (CBTUC), united to host a candlelight vigil for the four females who lost their lives in the Labour Day tragedy on June 1.

The 2018 Labour Day march was marred by a tragic accident which left four women dead and nearly two dozen persons injured.

A runaway vehicle plowed down the hill on East Street north toward Shirley Street.

Tabitha Haye, Kathleen Fernander, Tami Gibson and Diane Ferguson all died.

First responders on the scene were members of the Bahamas Nurses Union (BNU).

Amancha Williams, president of the BNU, while attending the candlelight vigil Friday, told Eyewitness News that nurses are still trying to cope with the traumatic experience.
