NERHA's Technical Regional Director Dr. Patrick Weatle
One of the vector control inspectors who was hospitalised in critical condition following a motor vehicle collision in Ocho Rios, St. Ann late last month has died.
Hardly Green, 52, died at the University Hospital of the West Indies in St. Andrew on Thursday.
It is reported that Mr. Green suffered burns to 80 per cent of his body.
He was among three workers attached to the North Eastern Regional Health Authority (NERHA) injured in the crash in the vicinity of the Reynolds Pier in Ocho Rios.
NERHA's Technical Regional Director Dr. Patrick Weatle offered condolences to the family of the deceased worker but said the other two employees are still recovering.
"One member of staff is back at work, the other is still on sick leave, still undergoing therapy at this point in time. But we will remain in contact with him, providing the necessary support," he said.
