A policeman (right) is helped by a security guard (left) and Jamaica Observer employee Donovan Grant to carry this unresponsive woman to a service vehicle outside the Tastee restaurant on Half-Way-Tree Road, St Andrew, yesterday. The woman, the Observer learnt, entered the restaurant's eating hall at minutes after 11:00 yesterday morning and appeared to have fallen asleep while sitting around one of the tables. However, employees became concerned as the hours passed with the woman still 'sleeping', dead to everything around her, including body shakes from employees and customers. The police were called and the woman, still unresponsive, was taken to a medical facility. Efforts to get an update on her condition by the Observer were unsuccessful. (PHOTO: MICHAEL GORDON)
