Police Service Pay Tribute To Fabian Victims

September 6, 2013

Ten years ago Hurricane Fabian claimed four lives when it made a direct hit on Bermuda with wind speeds of over 120 mph [195 km/h], and was the first hurricane to cause a death on the island since 1926.

Honouring those who were swept from the Causeway by Hurricane Fabian on September 5th 2003 members of the Bermuda Police Service visited the Kindley Field Park Memorial Bench erected in memory of those lost.

A police spokesperson said, “Yesterday at 2pm the Bermuda Police Service took the opportunity to remember the four people that were lost in Hurricane Fabian.

“At the Kindley Field Park Memorial Bench erected in their honour, Constable Richard Austin paid tribute to colleagues Constable Stephen Symons, Constable Nicole O’Connor and Station Duty Officer Gladys Saunders, as well as Corporation of Hamilton employee Manuel Pacheco.

“The remembrance was capped off with a moment of silence and a final tribute of flowers thrown into the ocean”.

On Sunday [Sept 1] the September 5th Foundation held its 10th Anniversary Hurricane Fabian Memorial Ride joined by the Bermuda Long Riders and members of the Bermuda Police Service Cycle Squad.
