There was a video circulated of Michael Pintard being rescued by the Royal Bahamas Defence Force from his house out beyond the Jack Hayward Bridge in Freeport during the aftermath of the storm. Those who lived out beyond the bridge had harrowing stories to tell. The question though is while others may have had an excuse for being there and not taking the evacuation notice seriously before the storm hit, does Michael Pintard a Minister of the Government have the same excuse. By staying put, he put not only his own life and the life of his family at risk but risked the lives of the first responders who went to go get him. It was not the responsible thing to do.
