A freak accident has taken the life of Jeffery Hernandez of Guinea Grass. The twenty-one year old villager was working at AP Enterprise Cement Block Factory located at mile 4 on the George Price Highway when he was crushed in the mixer.

Reports have it that just around 10:00 a.m. on Monday, September 3, 2018, Hernandez got into the mixer to clean it and  it was while he was inside that someone turned it on, not knowing that someone was inside. One of the blades apparently sliced open his abdomen and while there were several persons attempting to set him free, it was too late.

The Fire Department and BERT personnel eventually got him out of the machine but he succumbed to the severe injuries while being rushed to the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital.
