Jamaica: Boy mauled by dogs last year meets with education minister

More than a month after returning to Jamaica following a series of successful surgeries in the United States, Mickele Allen, who was mauled by a pack of dogs in St D’Acre, St Ann last year, continues to recover well.

Allen, now a six-year-old, along with his mother, Shereen Grindley, visited the Bustamante Hospital for Children in St Andrew for a follow-up appointment on Thursday.

While there, they met with Minister of Education, Youth and Information, Fayval Williams.

Allen returned to Jamaica on Tuesday, January 5, after spending more than a month at Montefiore Medical Centre in Bronx, New York, United States, where he underwent several medical procedures.

On her arrival in the island with her son, Grindley informed reporters that Mickele’s ear was also damaged in the attack, but the doctors in the US said “it is too much for him to do (another surgery now).

“… so they are sending him home for him to heal, do his check-ups (and) the surgeon said he will communicate, so they will see when (he can do the other surgery),” she outlined.
