A 5-year-old girl has met her untimely death at Moshie Zongo in Kumasi in the Ashanti region
This was after she was being washed away by flash waters on Tuesday, September 12, 2023.
Residents in the neighborhood claim that the dead, whose name has not yet been released, was swept away by floods following a significant downpour.
After the intense downpour, the girl, a student of Ethiopia International School at Pankrono Estate, was found floating in a gutter.
The young woman had just finished school and was heading home, according to Nana Adu, a local resident.
“We have no idea what caused her to drown; all we saw was her lifeless body floating in the sewer while wearing a tarnished school uniform. We hurried to get her, but a local hospital later reported that she had passed away.
The sad incident has shaken the spine and nerves of the residents in the area.
