Tragedy Strikes

Out in the Palikir Ward area tragedy struck while clearing a huge tree that had blown down over the road.  An eleven year old boy was playing at the base of the root ball while the adults were cutting the tree in pieces.  The weight suddenly shifted and the root ball slammed down on the boy killing him instantly.  Such a terrible ordeal for this community to endure.
 Bishop Ongesel came to the scene and dug the boy's body from under the tree.  The family erected this small memorial in his memory.
