House collapses in Belize City

A Belize City man suffered a frightening experience on Wednesday night, when the house he resides in on Freetown Road suddenly collapsed.

He gives his account of what happened.

“My young lady come and call me tonight.  Me and she may have a conversation, because she told me a lee problem what she do go through and thing.  I went in. I listen to her and thing. 

All of a sudden we may reason together and thing, and we hear a noise downstairs.  When she tell me she heard a noise, I hear it too, but I never pay it no mind.

When she tell me look through the window, I look through the window and see this dread man beat me post, beat it for no reason. 

All of a sudden the house collapse with me and the young lady ina it, but nobody never get hurt and thing.”


According to Kevin Rowland, he did not expect this to happen to him.

He was recently released from prison and his relatives live in the United States.

He is asking for the public’s assistance to help get him back on his feet.
