A boy drowns in manhole in Ghana

Students drown in river on way to school

Three children drowned in a river on their way to school in Mankranso, in the Ahafo Ano South West district of Ghana’s Ashanti region.

“The victims have fallen into the Mankra River, where a makeshift log had been placed to help commuters, including school children, cross to their destinations,” according to reports.

The bodies were recovered and deposited at the morgue after traditional authorities in the area performed some rituals.

District Chief Executive for Ahafo Ano South West, Joseph Frimpong Bonsu, confirmed the incident and said measures are being put in place to construct a footbridge to prevent similar incidents in the future.
