Popular dancehall selector Richie Feelings, is giving thanks today that his only daughter Orithia 'Missy' Bailey is alive today after being was involved in a car accident on Marcus Garvey Drive on Thursday, which has left one person dead.
"Yuh know she could have been dead, but she's not, suh me grateful," he said of Missy, who is the deputy head girl at prestigious all-girls high school, Queens.
"Normally me carry her everywhere she a go, but she's responsible so she can go anywhere," he said.
He told a Jamaican tabloid that he was on his way to a ball game when he received a phone call informing him of the accident.
Recalling that the last words his daughter said before leaving the house were 'daddy I'm leaving now', made the incident almost unbelievable for the selector.
"It no really a go dung well wid me," he said. "Three of them were on the back seat, the other girl died and the guy has a patch over his eyes, look like him nah see out of one eye," he added.
Despite the bruises, and injuries he is happy she will not be hindered from starting university in September.
