Dexter Watson and his seven-year-old son Brandon Douglas are lucky to be alive, after being buried when a cesspit trench Watson was digging in Moruga collapsed over them on Saturday. The two were rescued by neighbours. Watson, 32, suffered three broken ribs while Douglas (inset) suffered massive head and chest injuries. The two are being treated at the San Fernando General Hospital, where Douglas was yesterday hooked up to a life-support system in the Intensive Care Unit.
