The child is currently hospitalized.

According to mother, the six-year-old girl was left playing in the yard.
“At the time, the child’s grandmother was at her home doing house chores and last saw her about 11:30hrs,” the police said.
It was not until 12:30, when calls by the grandfather went unanswered, that they realized the little girl was missing.

As a result, a search party was immediately formed by relatives and friends who combed the entire area. “About 14:00hrs, during the search the child’s grandfather found her submerged in a swampy area, about five hundred feet away from the house, covered in mud,” the police reported.
The six-year-old girl was picked up in an unconscious state and rushed to New Amsterdam Public Hospital, where she was seen and examined by a doctor, who admitted her as a patient. Later, she was referred to Georgetown Public Hospital Corporation (GPHC), where she is presently admitted and is undergoing treatment.
