Was it Obeah?

This composite captures the chaotic scene which unfolded at the Anchovy High School last Friday, as a number of students had to be rushed to the hospital after coming in contact with a myseterious stick, which caused them to faint upon making contact with it. Students are shown being lifted into waiting vehicles, while others were wheelchair-bound after making it to the hospital.

“No sah, dem obeah di pickney dem! Watch how dem a faint weh,” were the words of a puzzled student of the Anchovy High School, in Southern St. James, which hastily suspended classes on Friday after several students fainted after coming in contact with a male student.

What has been described as a bizarre incident which left many wondering what kind of forces were at work, began to unfold minutes into the morning devotion when a male student, who was said to be a victim of bullying, managed to bypass the security guard with a stick and, moving as though in a trance, began to wield the stick wildly, hitting several students during the devotional exercise.

Upon entering the school, he was confronted by a prefect who asked him what he was doing with the stick and he responded ‘Move!’ in a commanding tone, and sidestepped him.

“The boy began to wave the stick and hit a number of students. Others began to panic, running all over, almost tramping themselves in the process,”one senior student shared. 

Eyewitness reports are that some students ran to the nearby nurse’s station, which was closed, and the boy, with wild-looking eyes rushed to the area, banging the door as though trying to force it open.

A prefect confronted him, took the stick and broke it. It was then that things went awry as two students fainted, followed by what seemed a ripple effect as the scene became more mysterious, with another two students fainting.

“Fear began to wash over the school because everybody began to wonder about the boy and the stick, if the stick had special powers, because close to 20 students fainted after it was broken.”

This prompted speculation that some dark forces at work, but some teachers and students shot that theory down, saying it was a panic attack.

The administration is said to have called the medics and the affected students were rushed by ambulance to the Cornwall Regional Hospital, for assessment and possible treatment.

Meanwhile, it is understood that a meeting of the Board of Governors was hastily called to assess the situation. We have not been able to get a comment on the situation.

  22. In the grand design of things you receive an A for effort and hard work. Where you actually misplaced me was in the facts. You know, they say, the devil is in the details… And that couldn’t be much more true here. Having said that, allow me say to you just what exactly did give good results. Your writing is certainly pretty powerful which is probably why I am making an effort in order to opine. I do not make it a regular habit of doing that. Next, although I can certainly see the leaps in reason you come up with, I am not convinced of how you appear to connect the points that make your conclusion. For right now I shall yield to your point however wish in the near future you actually connect your dots much better.
