TRINIDAD: Nurse Used As Human Shield In Shooting At The Port Of Spain General Hospital.

Sup Travellers?! Most people don't wake up in the morning and say to themselves, "Today i'm feeling to get shot while i'm at work!" So we could all imagine how a nurse who was shot on duty must be feeling right now. She was just at work doing what she usually does, but every time stupid people meet innocent people, bad things are bound to happen. Read on.

According to reports from the Trinidad Express, a 28 year old nurse was used as a human shield during a shooting incident at the Port of Spain General Hospital on Wednesday. Her name is Alexis Bhagan of Barataria, Trinidad and she is the mother of two. Bhagan was one of three victims who were shot when a gunman walked on to the hospital’s compound looking for a particular person.

Police said that shortly after noon yesterday, the intended target of Nelson Street, Port of Spain and Chavez Toppin, 20, also of Nelson Street brought one of their friends to the hospital for follow-up treatment after a shooting several weeks ago. The men left their friend at the Accident and Emergency Department of the hospital and walked over to the food vending area of the hospital to buy doubles. As they stood in front of the vendor, Toppin and the other man were approached from behind by the gunman who was armed with a .38 revolver according to the Trinidad Express.


Toppin and the other man reportedly turned around just in time to see a gun pointed at them following which the other man grabbed Bhagan and placed her in front of him just as the gunman opened fire. Bhagan was hit in her face and as she fell the gunman continued firing, hitting Toppin in his abdomen. The other man ran off but while doing so the gunman continued firing, hitting Celene Vialva also aged 28. She was struck in the left foot. The gunman then escaped. Bhagan remained in critical but stable condition at the hospital’s Intensive Care Unit.

I feel so sorry for Bhagan. She was just in the wrong place at the wrong time, but at least she's still alive. She could have easily died on the spot but let's hope that she makes a speedy recovery. Let's hope that she lives to tell the tale to her children. It will definitely be quite a tale to tale to tell. Anyway, my name is Trinikid and you've just been informed.
