The government has offered to provide assistance to the family of the 12-year-old boy who died last night after boulders fell on a house in Broadgate St Mary.

Relatives report that Raheem Davy and his eight-year-old twin sisters were at a relative's home watching television when three large rocks fell on the house.

It’s reported that all three sustained multiple injuries and were taken to hospital where Raheem was pronounced dead.

Both sisters remain hospitalised with one of them said to be in critical condition.

Relatives say the house was completely destroyed.

The Gleaner/Power106 News Centre understands that Local Government Minister Desmond McKenzie has received a report on the incident and is trying to arrange assistance for the family.
