'IT WAS A NIGHTMARE'
Stacy Mohammed and her
15-year-old son Antonio were two of
the 30 passengers who were on board
American Airlines Flight 2713 from
Miami on Wednesday night who
were thanking God for life Thursday.
Shawn Bahaburr: A little small
turbulence and we acting like if the
plane was falling out of the sky.
Finnel Seepersad: Thank God
you all are okay.
Novana Forde: Thank God all on
board arrived alive. I know the feel-
ing with slight turbulence, much less
for severe. Hope you all feel better
Wren Vally: I can relate to her
experience, happened to me when
I was leaving Malaysia to China
and for more than 30 mins we were
rocking from side to side, plane kept
dropping. I held on to a pastor hand
n lord know I never prayed so hard in
Judy Choudhry: Let's thank the
captain and his crew for getting this
plane to land safely regardless of the
hurdles along the flight. Few bumps
and bruises but everyone is alive.
Ozra Nellyne Peters: Hear nah,
firstly Thank God this plane landed
safely but if this had happened on a
CAL trip, Trinis wouldn't have stop
bashing our national airline. But ah-
hhlasss, what should I expect, eh!
Jalulhuddin Muhammed Ack-
bar: This is what happens when
passengers don't pay attention to the
Leon Wilson Heli: These things
happen due to weather and if the
plane was delayed or re routed to
another airport for the night we all
would have been upset, so let's just
thank the Lord for bringing them
safely to their destination. We hu-
mans are hard to please. Dam if you
and dam if you don't.
Betty Motilal: Always pray for
everyone before planes take off. Ask
for God's guidance for the pilots and
protection for all.

Maureen L De Matas: Get well
Lystra Mohammed: Speedy re-
covery to you hun.
Michelle Hessic: She needs to
sue them! Contract or not. That's
ridiculous, these people could get
away with murder when someone
gets hurt. For them business like
normal. The show will go one. It's
their duty to make sure the stage

Donna Nicholas: This is so sad
sister, hope you feel better soon!
Lynda P Hewitt: Thank God for
his mercies. This could have been
much worse. Speedy recovery to you,
Margaret Bolden: My prayers
and thoughts to QOB. Will miss you.
Get well soon..Rest up my dear.
Selene John-Baptiste: Destra, I
hope you get well soon. A little ad-
vice---please use this time to reflect
and do some soul searching. Reach
out to God and ask him what does he
really want from you. I don't think
God wants you to be the Queen of
Bacchanal, darlin. Spend some time
with Jesus. You may not see this
message but I will pray for you my
Prisoner held after
bolting from cops
A prisoner who escaped from the
Couva Police Station yesterday after
he was charged with possession of
a device used for consuming illegal
drugs was recaptured last night.
Stephen Steve Ramdhani: Good
job, officers. The police are working
hard, give them a raise, and pay them
their backpay. They deserve it.
Temba Cudjoe: And now you
have two charges and will most likely
not get bail. Smh. Worse yet, you
runaway to go home? That making
Anita Nathoo-Satnarine: They
can't find who killing and shooting
people but they could find somebody
for being caught with a device for
Marlene Andrews: But he went
home. Sigh... It was impossible for
them not to find him.
Dave Sorillo: The man never
escaped he walk out the station
because two officers left him unat-
Lystra Laurent: How he over-
powered this police man? Oh maybe
the police man was a fragile little

8 Chinese nationals
released after raid
Eight of the 20 Chinese nationals
who were held on Monday during
a police raid in Port-of-Spain have
been released as their work permits
were verified by immigration offi-
Shyankaran Lalla: No jobs for
locals but govt grants work per-
mits for Chinese labourers. Need
to investigate the process by which
Immigration grants these approvals
of work permits. Which influential /
rich Chinese dictating and or pulling
giverent strings? Is there more in the
mortar than the pestle? Is this gov-
ernment continuing the policies of
the UNC/PP govt by bringing hoards
of Chinese and where are the union
Yvonne Hosein: The Chinese
work, Trinis rob an kill people.
Kenny Supersad: Illegal immi-
grants working all over the country
while the government does nothing.
Michael Lee: Trinidad is the ex-
ample of a society that outsources
local businesses rather than invest-
ing in citizens to keep the economy
running. The Chinese will come and
suck the money out the economy
and send it right back to China. So
you wonder why crime is so high,
just a basic example of economic
cause and effect.
Daniel Knights: Our citizens just
like to sit on the road side and rob
people and their business for small
change, while the outsiders coming
and working hard.
