    The saddest part of this incident is that Damion was still alive when the EMT arrived, but they did not even put a mask over his face, despite the brother telling them to do so.  Even when he reached the hospital, witnesses say that he was still alive but no one tried to assist him.  The family needs to sue the Hospital for negligence.  If he had been a white young man he would have been asssisted, but he was an Afro-Caymanian.

    Life is so fragile.  I just spoke with Damion yesterday in regards to his first week on the job at Car City.  He was so excited and happy with his employers.  Damion was such a promising young man and had so much potential. I am shattered that you are gone. Gone too soon.  R.I.P Damion, you will be missed for a very long time.
