21-year-old man slips and dies in abandoned galamsey pit

A twenty-one-year-old man met his untimely death when he slipped and fell into an abandoned galamsey pit at Peminase near Bomfa in the Ejisu-Juaben Municipality in the Ashanti Region.

The remains of Yaw Boakye, have since been deposited at the morgue of the Konongo-Odumase Government Hospital for autopsy.

He said the deceased had joined other labourers at the construction site to wash themselves after the day’s work and slipped into the pit which was filled with water.

He said an attempt by the colleagues to rescue him from the pit was not successful and they informed elders of the Peminase community about the mishap.

The assembly man said Boakye was unconscious when divers managed to bring him out and was pronounced dead on arrival at a nearby medical centre.

The remains were later moved to the Konongo-Odumase Government Hospital mortuary for autopsy.

When contacted, the Konongo Divisional Police Commander, Superintendent of Police Bossman Ohene Boadi said police were yet to receive formal report on the matter.
