WATCH: Waterfall visit ends in grief as cars allegedly broken into

Video footage showing several cars which seemed to have been broken into while hikers travelled to the Rio Seco waterfall has caused some concern among citizens.

The video, which was shared to social media over the weekend, showed several cars and a van with smashed windows, and car alarms blaring.

Some said they no longer feel safe venturing near the isolated area, however others said this will not deter them from enjoying the country’s natural features.

Shaun Singh:

“Nothing and no one is safe anymore.”

Michelle Bowen:

“Everything we do in this country now has to be done with a high level of Risk Assessment and implementation of strategic measures, to minimize or eliminate these risks. It will come at a cost but I am certain it won't be as much as this madness is going to cost the owners of these vehicles.”

Wendy Manoo:

“Ummm.....more or less...we CAN'T do anything in this country.”

Raphael Cudjoe:

“This is madness you can't go anywhere & leave ur car”

Marlisa Robinson:

“Carnival. They more desperate. To b honest. U better hone yes. These pests dont care. Distressing people. Lorddddd. I sorry for you all. They wicked and nasty.”
