He Was The Sole Survivor Of His Town.
Born 1875 on the Caribbean island of Martinique, Ludger Sylbaris worked as a laborer in the town of Saint-Pierre. In fact, he has become notorious for always making trouble and he has been convicted for it.
On the night of May 7, 1902, he went out of town to get some drink. He ended up causing a riot and then eventually beating a man. This incident led to him being thrown to a solitary confinement. To teach Sylbaris a lesson, the police locked him in a single, partially-underground cell. It didn’t even have a single window, aside from the small slit in the door.
