ST. MARGARET, Stann Creek District, Fri. Jan. 17, 2020– At about 7:30 Friday evening, a vehicle in which a couple and their two daughters were traveling from Belize City to Placencia, missed the bridge at St. Margaret on the Hummingbird Highway, overturned and fell into the creek below.

Luckily, the driver of a vehicle that was traveling behind them saw what happened, and rushed to their rescue, and took them out of their vehicle.
