NEW YORK, United States (CMC) — A Jamaican has become the 13th victim of a deadly fire in the Bronx, New York that killed four members of his Jamaican family last week.
Family member Andrene Paul told reporters that Holt Francis, 27, who was critically injured in the blaze died on Thursday after he was declared brain dead and taken off life support at Jacobi Medical Centre.
Francis had been in a coma since the fire in the Belmont section of the Bronx ripped through his apartment building on Prospect Avenue on December 28 killing 12 people, including his wife, Karen Stewart-Francis, their daughters, seven-year old Kelesha and two-year-old Kylie.
His niece, Shawntay Young also died in the fire.
Doctors removed Francis from life support a few days after his condition deteriorated. more
