Teacher on life support after night out turns tragic
Kescia Branche, a 22-year-old teacher of Richard Ishmael Secondary School, remains unconscious and on life support at the Georgetown Public Hospital after her battered body was picked up by an ambulance during the wee hours of Sunday at the junction of Princes Streets and Louisa Row, Georgetown.
Although efforts to contact Branche’s family proved futile, relatives had reported that they last saw Branche on Saturday evening when she left for a night out with her friends. The relatives reported that they were shocked after receiving a phone call on Sunday morning informing that Branche was in the hospital. The mother of one, who resides in Cummings Lodge, Greater Georgetown, was reportedly found lying unconscious around 05:45h on Sunday after which she was rushed to the medical facility.
Guyana Times understands that Branche suffered a broken left leg and multiple head injuries. However, it is yet unclear as to how she received those injuries. Police have since launched an investigation to find out what really happened the night Branche left her home in Cummings Lodge.
Any person with relevant information is asked to contact the Branche family on 592-677-8733.
