A young woman died, several people injured during Independance Day Parade in Sosua
PUERTO PLATA A young woman died and at least 8 people got injured after a fall of a concrete roof of a shop, as they were witnessing the Independence Day parade in Sosua.
The victim is Amber Williams Sena, 18, who was a professional model. Approximately 30 people were watching the parade when suddenly a particular flight bordering the local ice cream shop collapsed and fell on them.
The incident occurred in the Los Charamicos, near the entrance to the beach. Residents of Sosúa demanded from government authorities to build a hospital, that never happened.
Amber was taken to a local health center with little equipment, and then to the Ricardo Limardo hospital in Puerto Plata, but unfortunately died on the way due to blunt blows to the head that fractured her skull.
