A 19 year John Agyare known to his peers as Atta drowned following an unsuccessful attempt to swim in the Life Hotel swimming pool.
the incident occurred late Monday night, 26, December 2022 at the life hotel located at Ahwiaa overseas in the Kwabre East Municipal in the Ashanti Region.
The deceased, Atta left home with his other siblings and friends to attend the picnic, and around 11 pm, I had a call from one of the boys he went with that, he has been admitted at the Trinity hospital after a failed swimming, Senior Sister disclosed.
“Atta drowned after he attempted to swim at a depth of 9 feet in the pool this evening,” a sobbing brother narrates.
We came around 7 p.m, the people were already leaving so I told him we should go back but he insisted we swim for a while before we go home even though it was so cold.
He pushed me into the water and followed up, I saw myself struggling to come out but someone helped me out, but he was swimming to the amazement of all, but later realized he was no where to be found so I asked those in the water but none gave me a positive answer, he shared with tears.
The young brother continue to say he announced the MC and a quick search saw him under the water, an attempt to resuscitate him proved futile, and he was then rushed to the Trinity hospital at Pankrono where he was pronounced dead on arrival.
The Manponten police were called to the scene and picked up the body and deposited it at the Ebenezer mortuary pending investigation.
The management of the life hotel in a voice conversation with this portal said, they are helping the police through the investigation and hope for a resolution.
