CaribWorldNews, TORONTO, Canada, Thurs. Mar. 19, 2009: A 60-year-old Canadian woman who was badly beaten during a mugging on a Barbados beach on Feb. 28 is now dead.
Terry Schwarzfeld died Wednesday morning at Ottawa Civic Hospital where she was being treated for brain injuries sustained from the mugging.
Schwarzfeld had recently been named president of the Canadian chapter of Hadassa-WIZO, a charitable international Jewish women’s organization nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize in 2005.
Canadian Jewish Congress CEO Bernie Farber says his organization is `deeply saddened by Terry’s loss` and urged Barbadian police to find the perpetrator and bring him/her to justice.
