A hospital security guard tragically perished on Thursday night after a gas explosion in the oxygen unit of the Eastern Regional Hospital in Koforidua.
Although two other healthcare employees who were in the premises at the time of the occurrence managed to leave without injury, the reason of the oxygen cylinder explosion is still unknown.
The dead person had significant head injuries and was taken right away to the hospital’s Intensive Care Unit (ICU), where they were put on a ventilator. Sadly, they died not long after that.
The terrible incident has been reported to the deceased’s family by the hospital administration, who is also actively working with the authorities to investigate the incident.
