Captain of the Dominica cricket team and former Windward Islands Volcanoes captain Tyrone Theophile who suffered a fractured skull as a result of a motorcycle accident on Christmas Day has been airlifted by a Martinique air ambulance for urgent medical attention in Martinique.
Health Minister Dr. Irvin McIntyre was present at the Canefield airport along with family members and friends of Theophile. Parliamentary representative for the area Denise Charles who is also a family member of Theophile was also present and called on the general public to “lift him up prayers.”
“He is a focused young man, he is my cousin and this is personal to me, I am praying hard and it is my hope and prayer that he returns to us,” Charles said.
Dr. McIntyre described his conditions as “critical “and is hoping for the best.
“We had to get him out urgently. He is in a critical condition, a sportsman man who is well-loved and we ask that everyone keep him in their prayers,” Dr. McIntyre said.
Meantime, West Indies Players’ Association (WIPA) President and CEO Wavell Hinds has sent best wishes to Theophile.
The association today extended its sympathies, prayers and best wishes to Theophile.
“Our prayers are with you and your family at this time. We wish you a speedy and full recovery,” WIPA President and CEO Wavell Hinds said.
