Persons who witnessed the accident rushed to the boy’s aid. He was sheltered from the sweltering heat with pieces of cardboard boxes and an umbrella until the ambulance arrived. Residents were overheard commenting on the accident, with some expressing frustration with the bikers and the fact that they did not remain on the scene.
The injured child’s mother arrived on the scene soon after and was inconsolable to see that her child had been in an accident. The ambulance arrived shortly after and transported the child to St. Maarten Medical Center (SMMC) for medical attention.
