Deputy Prime Minister and Castries East Representative Philip J. Pierre said the recent tragic death of a resident in his constituency has caused him to reflect on life.

The partly decomposed body of well-known vagrant John Johnnie, better known as Magana, was discovered in the wee hours of this morning under the rubble of a collapsed wall in Trou Rouge, Marchand.

In a statement posted on his Facebook page minutes ago, Pierre said he has just returned from Trou Rouge where he had the “unfortunate experience of witnessing, first hand the partly decomposed body”.

Pierre, who is also the minister for infrastructure, port services and transport, said seeing Magana’s lifeless body made him reflect on his “own mortality and that of man in general”.

“These experiences should have an impact on all of us, not just the immediate family,” Pierre said. “It should cause us to ponder on the true meaning of life, and seeing the frailty of man, should help limit our negativity and propensity to harm or injure people by word or deed.”

While expressing condolences to Magana’s family, the minister commended several people who were instrumental in locating and removing the body from the mass rubble.

“I want to compliment the residents of Trou Rouge for their selfless community effort in assisting the police and staff of the funeral home in removing the decaying body from the mass rubble.

“Special mention must be made of MacArthur and his brother and the neighbour who supplied electricity for the equipment used. Reyneau Gajagdhar of CIE also offered his equipment to assist in removal of the body.

“I also want to commend the police officers who were on the scene for many hours investigating the tragedy. Allow me to mention PC517 Joseph, PC 291 Emmanuel, WPC 832 Wilton, Corporal 331 Henry and SPC 43 Didier for their professionalism and commitment,” the minister said.

Neighbours have told SNO that this was the second time a wall was collapsing on Magana.

  2. Is really sad to see how ignorant and uneducated some of you guys are. you guys are so quick to judge. Try being proactive in your community. Give out a helping hand to people in need. You guys are so quick to point a finger. You all know the boy whole life story but you guys did nothing to help him. Lucians sometimes is better to say nothing if all that comes out your mouth is negativity. I have never seen a bunch of ignorant and small minded people like some of you.

  5. the man's death was caused by falling and failing infrastructure for which Pierre is himself responsible for? someone said Pierre knew about the collapsing wall. maybe, there was need for a road first before fixing the collapsing wall? over to you Mr. Pierre.

  10. Sad way to go, RIP. What sticks out in my mind is the the body was decomposed, how long did the building collapse? A building collapses and no government representative cleans up the community? I guess Trou Rouge is not en route to our tourist destination.

  11. "As I see it" as smart as you may try to appear or speak, your little brain should be able to at least think of when people are grown, no matter how much you would try to help them out, its difficult because they have already chosen that certain path to live. So the useless and senseless comment you made is irrelevant. As a matter of fact, since you are so disgusted by the families who you think didnt make an effort to help him, why not get yourself off the chair or where ever you are and start a petition or campaign to "assist those people who you believe their families abandoned them" before its too late. Its hig time we stoo being judges, forensic pathologists, magistrates, counselors etc.of unfortunate situations.... its defensive and not defencive, people have not people has, abandoned not abundant, theres no such word as choops. It is sad that these comments are read all over the world with such poor wording and sentence structuring

  15. Well I am relieved your headline did not say something like "Vagrant Killed in Building Collapse" like the other online news site.

    This is a tragic and painful way for anyone to lose their life, and him being a "vagrant" does not lessen the severity of what happened.

  18. This young man had an unfortunate life. I knew him as a child he was severly abused. They would beat him, lock him out of the house and almost starve him.
