Statement of Augusta Administrator Janice Allen Jackson


Statement of Augusta Administrator Janice Allen Jackson:

We remain concerned for the families of Melquan Robinson and the two other children injured in the accident Monday night at Fleming Athletic Complex. As a result, Mayor Hardie Davis Jr. and I have personally reached out to them.

The cause of the accident is still undetermined. Much of the information appearing in the news and social media, therefore, is unconfirmed. We ask the media to refrain from making statements about the cause of the accident, since the cause has not yet been determined.

In order to determine the cause of the accident at Fleming, the city of Augusta immediately engaged the services of a qualified firm that specializes in this type of work.

Out of an abundance of caution, we also asked the firm to assess the following facilities because of their similar wiring:

  • May Park
  • Diamond Lakes
  • McDuffie Woods
  • Eisenhower Athletic Complex
  • Newman Tennis Center
  • Fleming Tennis Center

Augusta’s team will do all it can to determine why and how this accident happened.
