A thirty-one year old mother and her one year old son met their untimely death in Wenchi this morning as their collapsing house trapped them inside.
Late Mary Ama was said to be cleaning the mud house at Akrobi Old Town, a community in the Wenchi Municipality with his son Antivi Fiagara strapped to her back when the accident occurred. The building with loosed walls fell on the two killing them instantly.According to the husband Kwabena Fiagara who spoke to Angel FM's Piesie Yaw Preko this evening monitored by CitizenOne, he had noticed the bad state of the building and acquired a new one. He said the family was preparing to move in very within this week.
Kwabena said, at the time of the incident, he had gone to pick some foodstuff from the farm only to be called back home to witness a horrific scene.
The bodies of the two had been sent to Wenchi Methodist hospital for preservation and for autopsy to be done.
Officials of the National Disaster Management Organisation (NADMO) have warned persons living in delapidated buildings in the area to move to safer houses due to the heavy downpours these days.
