Opposition Spokesperson on Tourism, Senator Janice Allen lamented the death of the woman’s 12-year-old granddaughter, Jennell Walters, who was also washed away. Jennel’s body was found near the wharf, yesterday evening.
Senator Allen said the young girl was a first-form student at the Montego Bay high school.
She noted that the tragic incident highlights the need for a better drainage system in the parish.
Senator Allen argued that Montego Bay will not be able to sustain its growth if the drainage issue is not rectified.
