The Communication Director for the National Disaster Management Organization (NADMO), Mr. George Ayisi Boateng on speaking to TV XYZ has expressed his condolences to the families of the drowned victims of Apam who lost their lives.
In his accounts, he ensured the general community of Apam that authorities will continue to scout the beach areas and other coastal areas in search of the remaining bodies yet to be retrieved. The institution has also visited the families of the victims as well. It is however unclear how many bodies are yet to be retrieved. Currently, twelve bodies have been retrieved.
In his accounts , it appears the children used an illegal route to access the beach which has been closed due to Covid-19 protocols. However, the elders in the community suspects some mystical or spiritual aspect to the kids drowning.
The area in which the children decided to have a swim appears to be a dangerous zone in which fishermen do not even dock. In knowing all these , the children who appears to have rallied themselves stowed their way to have a fun fare beach day.
According to one of the lucky survivors, a big tidal wave came in to cover them while they swam. Unfortunately it took almost all of the kids away while he was pushed offshore. It is estimated that there were about twenty teenagers who were swimming on Sunday, when the sad incidence occured.
