Boy Slips to Death in Kumasi
A seven-year old boy is feared dead after he accidentally slipped into a stream.
The Sisa River, which is close to the Airport Roundabout in Kumasi, had overflowed its banks when the boy slipped and fell into it on Saturday. His body is yet to be retrieved.
Residents of the area, especially the energetic youth, did everything humanly possible to save the seven-year-old boy but to no avail.
Eye witnesses told THE PUBLISHER that the boy was in the company of an elderly person when he accidentally fell into the stream.
News about the incident attracted a large crowd to the scene, but neither the Ghana National Fire Service nor the dozens of volunteers around could locate him, dead or alive.
The frantic search, which started around 6pm, continued deep into Saturday’s night but the body could not be found. People have speculated that the body could have been washed into a bigger stream downstream.
