Share Tweet 756 Views   no discussionscenter_img Share Share KINGSTOWN, St Vincent (CMC) – A fourth form secondary school student died Wednesday night after he was crushed by a boulder as he tried to alleviate flooding in his home during the passage of Tropical Storm Matthew.Police have not released the name of the student of the Buccament Bay Secondary School, and Deputy Director of the National Emergency Management Organisation (NEMO), Michelle Forbes, has made a very strong appeal for persons to remain vigilant as drains and rivers have over flown their banks dumping debris and other materials on the roads making some of them impassable.A resident of the Central Leeward town said the teenager was crushed when he attempted to clear debris behind his home that was being flooded.The house is located close to a rocky cliff and reports are that the boulder had become lose pinning the student against the wall of the concrete house, killing him instantly.Meanwhile, in Buccament Bay, a neighbouring village in Central Leeward, several people abandoned their homes and sought refuge in emergency shelters as the river nearby again overran its bank.Police officers, including members of the Rapid Response Unit, where at the Buccament Bay Secondary School around 10:00 pm (local time) helping to transport people to the official emergency centre.Assistant Superintendent of Police, Enville Williams, told the Caribbean Media Corporation (CMC) that the police were there to help to save lives as an estimated 25 people left their homes for the shelter.In 2013, the river was responsible for the deaths of several people after heavy rains caused by the passage of the Christmas Eve trough system caused widespread flooding.There were reports of flooding in a number of areas, as well as landslides and power outages.The state-owned Agency for Public Information (API) said Wednesday night that there have been confirmed reports of flooding in Vermont, South Rivers, sections of Kingstown, Campden Park, Arnos Vale, including the ET Joshua Airport, Langley Park and Buccament.In addition, NEMO has received confirmed reports of damage to several homes, landslides and blocked roads.The Central Water and Sewage Authority (CWSA) has reported that Hermitage River has risen by 1.10 meters in the last hour and as a precautionary measure, the CWSA turned off all of their water systems.Schools will remain closed for the rest Thursday.NEMO is urging residents not to go sightseeing as emergency services will be responding to reports and roads have been impacted by landslides and flooding.Meanwhile, forecasters at the ET Joshua Airport said late Wednesday that a tropical storm warning remains in effect for St Vincent and the GrenadinesA tropical storm warning means that tropical storm conditions are likely to affect the country — in this case, during the next 24 hours.Matthew was now moving towards the west at 15 miles per hour and a further decrease in forward speed is expected during the next few days. But it is expected to strengthen and become a hurricane by Friday.Forecasters say Matthew will continue to produce moderate to heavy showers, thunderstorms and gusty storm force winds across St Vincent Wednesday night into Thursday.last_img read more

Parents speak out about the skyrocketing cost of youth sports

first_imgmoodboard/Thinkstock(NEW YORK) — The skyrocketing cost of youth sports — which is now a $15 billion market, according to the research firm WinterGreen Research — has left many parents dishing out thousands of dollars to support child athletes that are beginning to specialize in sports from increasingly young ages.Ryan Brown, 14, told ABC News that he plays baseball “four hours a day, five days a week.”“If it weren’t for baseball, I don’t know what I’d be doing,” Ryan added, saying that he has been playing the sport since he was 4 years old.Ryan’s father, Rick Brown, told ABC News that the price of his son’s passion adds up quickly.Brown said that the cost of his son’s youth baseball career can come out to “over $10,000 a year,” adding that the total accumulates from tournament fees, uniforms and more. “Everywhere you turn, it’s more money,” Brown added.The financial commitment that parents make for young elite athletes is not uncommon. Some parents have even turned to crowdfunding, using sites like GoFundMe, to support the sports-related costs incurred by their children.Janine Brown, Ryan’s mother, told ABC News that “it would be really nice if he would get a college scholarship to play baseball.”Only approximately 2 percent of high school athletes are awarded some form of athletic scholarships in college, however, according to 2016 data from the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA).Some experts also warn parents that there could be potential dangers to having children specialize in one sport year-round at a young age because of the physical toll it can take on a young athlete’s body before he or she has matured. In baseball, the repetitive motions of pitching can led to chronic fatigue, which is highly correlated to increase in injury in kids, Dr. Neal ElAttrache, an orthopedic surgeon at Kerlan-Jobe Orthopaedic Clinic in Los Angeles, told ABC News.“Early specialization into one sport, and year round participation … The chances of overuse injuries and sometimes worse types of injuries are higher,” ElAttrache explained.This summer, Ryan sustained an elbow injury that hindered his ability to throw the ball, although he can still participate in hitting.“He’s torn the major stabilizing ligament in the elbow,” ElAttrache, who is also a team physician for the Los Angeles Dodgers, said of Ryan’s injury.The doctor also called for a change in the culture surrounding youth sports.“The culture is — you’re tough enough — and no pain, no gain. And you play with pain and it is part of the sport,” ElAttrache said, which can often lead to a “much more unfortunate situation [resulting in] further damage to [a] particular ligament, whether … one more pitch or 10 more games.”Some experts also spoke out in an interview with ABC News earlier this year, warning parents about a recent uptick in baseball-related injuries that have been appearing in younger and younger athletes.For Ryan, however, he says he is undeterred by his injury and remains passionate about playing baseball.“I love baseball so much,” the young athlete said. “I wouldn’t trade it for anything in the world.”Copyright © 2017, ABC Radio.
