West Kingston Family Remembers Tivoli Incursion

The painful memories of the west Kingston police-military operation are still fresh wounds for some families. CVM live visited one family who touched the hearts of many at the time. Their house was set ablaze and two of their relatives shot dead.

Elsa Ramsay says their lives were forever changed when gunmen killed her husband and her son.

The scar on her forehead from being gun butted bears the reminder of what took place on a labour day like this one.

Their house was fire bombed, their belongings destroyed and memories …all went up in smoke on May 24, 2010.

They were living in Whitfield Town, off Maxfield Avenue at the time which was under a state of emergency due to the Tivoli incursion.
