A sad incident has occurred at Obuasi - Akapoliso in the Obuasi East District. A 16 years old girl has drowned to death after she flipped off on a loose bridge in the community. The JHS 2 student was sent by her teacher to refill her gas cylinder for her.
However, she refused to use the money given by her teacher to board a vehicle but decided to go on foot. Due to the recent rains, the community has been flooded and the bridge of the Mmrikwa stream which is already in a poor state has been submerged with water.
As she walked on the bridge, she slipped and fell into the water and drowned. Rescuers have managed to retrieve her body out of the water. The assemblyman of the area, Hon. Jeff Kwadwo Agyei said that they are working with the District Assembly to fix the bridge as soon as possible.
The Obuasi East NADMO Director also mentioned that that area is swampy and because of this they had constructed big gutters in the community. However, they will keep on working to avoid such issues happening.
