Father lost son, 5, in storm surge  - The Nassau Guardian

Adrian Farrington, a 38-year-old Abaco father, watched a powerful storm surge swallow his young son.

While sitting on a gurney in a room at Princess Margaret Hospital (PMH) in Nassau yesterday, Farrington, a resident of Murphy Town, told The Nassau Guardian, “My leg was numb, but I was still trying to stay afloat with my son. After about an hour of treading water and bleeding, I noticed…some fins swimming along the houses.

“So, I grabbed my son and I put him on top the roof. The water was high on the roof.”

Farrington said his son, Adrian Farrington Jr., 5, kept crying.
