Kenron Lynch, a former student of the Buccament Bay Secondary School had his life cut short by Tropical Storm Matthew last night.
The deceased teenager lived in a two room wall structure at Bretrney, Layou, with his mother at the time of the accident.
Kenron met his unfortunate death while trying to investigate a sound he heard outside the home during the storm. A boulder came loose from the water logged soil and pinned Kenron to the house.
Prime Minister Dr. Ralph Gonsalves extended his sympathy to the family during a live broadcast call from Barbados late last night.
