Man Drowns While Impressing Girlfriends
A 22-year-old young man, identified only as Kwame Iron, has drowned in the Densu River in Koforidua as his female friends looked on helplessly.
The incident occurred on Monday around 3:30pm at Densuano, a suburb of New Juaben South Municipality
Information gathered by THE PUBLISHER indicates that the deceased went to swim in the river with some ladies but got drowned as he attempted to impress his female friends with his swimming skills. The female friends, however, reportedly took to their heels when they noticed that he had drowned.
The Densuano stretch of the Densu River has been turned into a beach where many residents visit to relax and swim. Ever since, incidents of drowning have been rarely recorded.
Yaw Kyei, who claims to be a relative to the deceased, told Starr News the deceased did not have any swimming skills as he claimed, and was therefore shocked that he had gone to swim at a time the water level was high as a result of the heavy downpours being recorded in parts of the region.
The body of the deceased has since been retrieved and deposited in the morgue while investigations continue.
