Bartender said Dancer Marvin Broke her Leg, Seek Compensation


Dancer Marvin

A woman who sustained serious injuries at the hands of an overzealous dancer, Marvin, at the popular Uptown Mondays dance is now demanding that her medical expenses be paid for by the entertainer.


As others revelled, the June 22 staging of the event at Savannah Plaza in St Andrew will not be forgotten by 27-year-old Shereen Hall any time soon.

Hall told THE STAR that she had been employed as a bartender at the weekly event for quite sometime, but never imagined what would happen on that unfortunate night.

"I was in the bar working. Marvin now, dem have a roof that they always go to dance on. The event was about to finish in the after 4 (a.m.)," she said.

"I stoop inna the bar..., and I don't know what happen. Mi only feel like mi go down and mi drop. When mi feel like mi drop now and turn around fi see wah gwaan, mi realise say the tent tear down, the liquor dem tun over and so. People start scream now; a pure noise. Mi try get up now, but then I could only stand on one foot. Two youth give me a crate and say mi can sit down pon it. Dem time deh mi foot a bleed."

Then collapsed

Hall explained that it was sometime later that she learnt that Marvin, who was dancing with a female patron, jumped off a roof and landed on the tent. The tent then collapsed, and during the incident, she sustained several injuries to her right leg and foot.

"The same time it happen, taxi took mi to Medical Associates Hospital. Mi left foot break inna the knee, and I had to do a surgery. The foot go from the ankle go up swell big. I had blood clots around the back of the calf there," she said.

Hall revealed that her medical expenses are rapidly creeping towards a million dollars. Having already paid $100,000 out of pocket, she wants the dancer to make things right.

"The surgery cost $805,000, plus the other $100,000 I spent already," she said. "Marvin has been getting pictures! From the incident, we don't see him. He is aware of the situation, and Marvin not even a call me. He called the Saturday before the surgery, and mommy tell him say, 'Marvin, her foot broke, and the surgery is $805,000', but he told her he doesn't have any money. He said he was gonna get back to us and him never get back to us."

Left outraged

Following a story published in THE STAR on July 15 chronicling the event, Hall and her family were left outraged at some of the claims made by the dancer, who said, "I checked up on her, and she say she all right, it's just a little fracture leg."

However, Hall insists that this is far from the case.

"All now we don't even get back $10 from Marvin. When the STAR come out with what he said, he called that day and left a voice note on my mom's phone. From that, we don't hear nothing from him," she said.

"Him a say him no have no money, and that can't help the situation. Most of what I read in THE STAR is pure lies! In THE STAR, he was saying he had made amends with me. unless I don't know the meaning of amends! He's saying it's a small fracture, and it's a big fracture."

Hall stated that she has sought the advice of a lawyer, and hopes that the dancer will duly compensate her for her injuries without having to take him to court.

"We were thinking to sue him to get some money; we don't have it!" she said. "From that day, I have not been walking. I can't walk, and I can't work to pay my bills because of the injuries."
