MONTEGO BAY, St James — Nine-year-old twins Brandon and Brayden Jones are feared dead after they were swept away by flood waters from heavy rains that pelted the western end of the island for more than five hours yesterday afternoon.
Up to late last evening, police and firefighters were searching the Montego Bay Harbour for the missing boys. The Jamaica Observer was told that about 3:00 pm the brothers were returning home from school — Green Pond Primary — when one of them fell into a drain filled with the angry flood waters near their Cornwall Courts home.
His brother attempted to rescue him, but was also swept away. — Horace Hines
