Boogsie goes flat

With his colleague, right, calling for help, a Petrotrin Phase II Pan Groove supporter holds on to Len “Boogsie” Sharpe after the ace pan arranger collapsed in his arms soon after the steelband finished playing in the National Panorama semifinal on Sunday night at Queen’s Park Savannah, Port-of-Spain. Sharpe was diagnosed as suffering from exhaustion and also had a high blood sugar level, but eventually discharged himself from Port-of-Spain General Hospital and was back home yesterday. Phase II won first place in the semis.
