Mom mourns for ‘her angel’

Monday, June 16 2014

“She was an angel,” was all grieving mother Angela Briggs was prepared to say of her daughter Rihanna Briggs, 11, who died when she accidentally strangled on a piece of clothing.

Newsday visited the home of the bereaved family at Dyers’ Village, Hardbargain yesterday.

Briggs had to be hospitalised following the news of the untimely death of the Standard Four pupil of the Hardbargain Government Primary. She was subsequently discharged late Saturday evening following observation.

Speaking yesterday from behind a half way opened door at her home, Briggs said she preferred to deal with her grief privately.

“She was such a nice child, she loved to dance,” she said.

A police report stated Rihanna was last seen alive at about 5 pm on Friday playing inside an unfinished house opposite where she lived. An alarm was raised about an hour later and relatives rushed over to find the little girl with a piece of clothing entangled around her neck. Investigators are treating the death as accidental since it is believed that she was playing under a clothing line when the shirt accidentally became wrapped around her neck causing her to strangle.

An autopsy is expected to be performed today at the Forensic Science Centre, St James. Investigations are continuing.
