Curtis Thompson, the father of two of the children who died in a car crash in Rose Hall, St. James
The father of two of the children who died as a result of injuries sustained in Tuesday's motor vehicle crash on the Rose Hall main road in St. James is struggling to remain strong following the tragedy.
His 10 year-old daughter, Tiana Thompson, died shortly after the crash along with six year-old Latisha Williams.
Another of his daughters, eight year-old Tiara Thompson, died Tuesday evening at Cornwall Regional Hospital.
"I went to the hospital and one of them pass off and the one weh nuh pass off a hear him crying and bawling out seh, 'Daddy, I don't want to miss you, I love you'. So dem send mi back over, mi get a call. Mi hear seh him die so that is just sad for a family. Me love my kids dem endlessly. The last time me get up an' nuh see dem is tears, but we have to just give hope in God cause God no give us than we can bear," said the grieving father, Curtis Thompson.
Mr. Thompson said it has been tough on his family, however, the community has been rallying around them.
An eight year-old boy and a ten year-old girl remain hospitalised.
The driver of the car in which they were travelling, security guard Kevin Hamilton, also died in the crash which occurred about 8 o'clock in the morning.
