While sitting on a gurney in a room at Princess Margaret Hospital (PMH) in Nassau yesterday, Farrington, a resident of Murphy Town, told The Nassau Guardian, “My leg was numb, but I was still trying to stay afloat with my son. After about an hour of treading water and bleeding, I noticed…some fins swimming along the houses.
“So, I grabbed my son and I put him on top the roof. The water was high on the roof.”
“But before I could sit on the roof to hold him, the gust from the hurricane dragged him across the roof back into the surge on the next side,” he said.
Farrington added, “I still could remember him reaching for me and calling me, ‘Daddy.’”
