The four whose conditions were critical were taken to Maridi hospital for treatment.

James David, an eyewitness said, attributed the accident to the wind and heavy rains that covered Maridi on that fateful day. David went on to add that he was not far from the scene of the incident, which allowed him to rush to the restaurant and help out where he could.

“Yes it is true, there was heavy wind this afternoon in Maridi which caused a big tree to fall on a local restaurant. One died instantly while the other one died later, on the way to the hospital.

Four sustained serious injuries,” said the witness.

James mentioned that a police officer and a civilian died and the four who were injured, were soldiers.

      What did you just say?!
      You ought to normally comment in Thokmuonjany for the consumption of hundreds if not thousands of illiterate Dinka in Jieng One abbreviated "J1"
      Go back to Primary Five or Six and come back online after 14 years.
