Boy, 14, in coma at Potter movie

By CECILY ASSON Tuesday, July 24 2007

KEVIN Williams became a hero on Saturday night after he helped to save his friend Curtley Scipio who had slipped into a diabetic coma while they watched the blockbuster movie, “Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix”, at Globe cinema, Princes Town.

Williams, 14, a student of Princes Town Junior Secondary in September, yesterday told Newsday that when the lights were turned on at end of the movie late Saturday night, a cinema attendant refused to believe Scipio was not sleeping but had slipped into a coma.

Yesterday, Scipio, 14, a student of Cowen Hamilton Secondary School, remained warded in satisfactory condition at San Fernando General Hospital. The boys live with their parents at Lothians Road, Princes Town.

Williams said he and Scipio sat two seats apart, and even he nodded off during the movie. He said when he awoke, he saw that Scipio was sleeping too but did not bother to wake him until the movie was over.

“Since it was not the first time he fell ill while we were out together, immediately I realised he had not taken his insulin and I know he had to get immediate attention.”

Williams said a cinema attendant refused to help, cursed him and even tried to wake Scipio.

“I told him (Scipio) had sugar (diabetes) and he was in a coma but he still didn’t believe me.”

Williams said a security guard came over and told him to get help from the nearby Princes Town Police Station, while the guard stayed with Scipio. Williams said the attendant followed him to the station and told him he was going home. Williams said a policeman called an EHS ambulance. “Although the people in the ambulance told me I was a minor, they still allowed me to go with them to the hospital,” said Williams. He said he contacted his mother Marilyn Williams who told Scipio’s family what had hapapend. Yesterday Scipio’s father, Carl said his son’s condition was improving.

Tony Sirju, of DS Pictures, which is responsible for Globe Cinema, told Newsday he was informed about the incident. “I am investigating it and I will get to the bottom of the matter and action will be taken if necessary.”
