G.I.S LOSES ITS TECHNICAL DIRECTOR
St. George -- The Government Information Service is today mourning the loss of its Technical Director, Hildebrande James.
James died by drowning on Monday afternoon while on a family outing at a local beach. Reports reaching CHIME FM say that he was, at the time, attempting to help a young relative who had run into difficulty when he was overcome by rough waters on the east coast of Grenada.
Efforts to perform CPR on the way to hospital proved futile and he was pronounced dead on arrival.
Mr. James, who passed away at the age of 45, was a native of Birch Grove in St. Andrew, but resided in Mt. Parnassus, St. George.
