The community of Fancy in St. Vincent and the Grenadines is marking one year since 7 students died in a minibus accident. There was a wreath laying ceremony at the site at Rock Gutter this morning, followed by an afternoon memorial service at the Fancy Playing Field. The ceremony was also addressed by Opposition Leader Arnhim Eustace and Prime Minister Ralph Gonsalves. The accident claimed the lives of seven students on January 12, 2015. They died when the minibus in which they were travelling plunged into the sea at Rock Gutter — an uninhabited area between Owia and Fancy. Two of the bodies were never recovered. 14 other passengers, 11 of whom are students, survived the accident.
