The incident happened at 5:40 in the evening when the manganese train trucks were coming down from Takoradi through to Kojokrom.
Mr. Ekow Amissah who got killed by the train had got to sit on the rail line to catch some fresh air as he lived some meters away from the rail line, something he has been doing for a very long time.
Last week, according to eyewitnesses, the late Ekow Amissah could not get up from the rail line after attempting to do so when the train was at high speed with its siren on. People who lived close to him admitted that Ekow was not feeling well before the tragic incident, more reason why he could not move away, only for the train to divide him into two.
His one week will be observed on Thursday, June 3rd, 2021 at the family house at Ketan, behind the Roman Catholic Church.
May his soul rest in peace.
