The source said sections of the infant’s lips had begun to burst. However, the general health of the child had improved.On Saturday morning, 19-year-old Roshanie Ramlakhan, of Number 58 Village, Corentyne, was picked up in a semi-conscious state next to a bus shed at Number 61 Village and the child was standing next to her when she was found.She claimed that she had ingested a poisonous substance and also given some to her baby to drink.Reports are that the woman and her 23-year-old husband had an argument earlier in the day and she left the house taking the child with her.While relatives have confirmed that there was an argument between the couple, they could not say what they were arguing over but related that an argument between the two was nothing strange.The woman and child were taken to the hospital by the Police, who were investigating the incident.
Sam Cassell was all smiles as he chatted with numerous reporters. Cuttino Mobley wore a stern look on his face for most of the afternoon. And the rest of the new Clippers got together for the first time at Staples Center for media day Monday as the team starts training camp today in Santa Barbara. The team’s goal is to make the playoffs and how Cassell and Mobley fit in could be the decisive factor in achieving that. Cassell and Mobley, who can be extremely vocal and cocky, could change the overall attitude of the Clippers as they try to have a winning record for the first time since the 1991-92 season. Elton Brand, who is starting the third year of a six-year, $82.2 million contract, still will be the team’s leader, but the dynamic among the squad should change. “Without a doubt, the swagger level goes up,” Brand said. “Sam Cassell has been talking trash as soon as he came here. That’s what we need. We need somebody that’s confident like that, saying, hey, jump on our bandwagon or get left behind. We haven’t had that.” AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREThe top 10 theme park moments of 2019 Cassell’s confidence even came out during the feel-good, non-confrontational media day as he dismissed the notion that he could be in a training camp battle with 20-year-old Shaun Livingston for the starting point guard job. “That’s a guy that you guys (reporters) blew up,” he said. “When we get on the court, his (butt) is mine. That’s the mind-frame that he’s got to understand. What you did previously – no one cares about that. You got to be ready, and I’m going to help him be ready.” Notes: Corey Maggette was the lone Clipper not to be with the squad. He rushed home to Chicago because of a family emergency. He is expected to join the squad sometime this week in Santa Barbara. Joe Stevens, (562) 499-1338 [email protected] 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
