News : Government pays $ 71,000 hospital bill to Kemoy Campbell
A beautiful gesture from the Jamaican government, which has paid a good part of the bill for the hospital where the athlete Kemoy Campbell was admitted. In total, almost $ 71,000. In a very harsh image that came to us from the prestigious Millrose Games which were held in New York last February 2019, the competition was interrupted after the Jamaican athlete fainted in the 3,000-meter test. The image is chilling. It is seen how Campbell little by little stops before the stupor of his companions and ends up vanishing while the medical personnel and the police arrive to help him.
The ministry, “in debt”
Well, the Ministry of Culture, Gender, Entertainment and Sports has taken over those almost $ 71,000. Campbell had developed a heart problem and, after receiving a defibrillator, he finally had to be fitted with a pacemaker. “ANDThe ministry felt compelled to help Kemoy”Said Portfolio Minister Olivia Grange. “He has performed very well for Jamaica and in fact, as we know, he got sick on the track. So the least we could do to show him appreciation and gratitude was help him in his time of great need. “
In the images it was possible to observe how the Central American did not respond to the first attempts to regain consciousness and US media confirmed that a defibrillator had to be used to revive it.
