Recovery Teams Working In Extremely Dangerous Conditions

9:00am Barbados Time – Tuesday, August 28, 2007
We notice that the radio and television reports are becoming fewer – a result of an expectation that the Codrington family are all dead. The rescue/recovery teams are working as hard as ever. Last evening the remains of the damaged building were knocked down in an attempt to make the worksite safer.
The most important news article of the day is an assessment by structural engineer Ralph Adams that appears in The Nation News. If such an article appeared in The New York Times about the collapse of a building in the United States, the police would now be using search warrants at the Town Planner’s Office and be in the middle of a homicide investigation. More on this later. (See The Nation News – Just A Matter Of Time!)
