Rena Eugene's loved ones express heartbreak
The tragic death of 18-year-old Rena Eugene, who died in a car accident along the Beanfield High Road in Vieux Fort on the morning of Sunday, July 8, 2018, has left loved ones in a state of devastation and disbelief.
Rena's father, a member of popular twin brother DJ duo Twinz of Twinz, was reportedly driving the pair home that morning when he was compelled to swerve out of the way of two vehicles which caused his car to spin out and hit into a pole. Rena was flung from the vehicle.
A video recorded by a passerby of the aftermath featuring Rena's body and her father's desperate reaction to the inconceivable tragedy circulated on social media, much to the dismay of her father who posted to Facebook saying, "Please don't post no video of my daughter please am begging😔😭😭😭😭😭😭😭" and later, "Please am begging stop dat video of my daughter I cah take it on please am begging😭😢😢😢😢😭😭."
He also posted, " Wats my life without u please Lord bring her back and take me😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭"
