Building collapses on 15 Sunday Sch. Kids at Agona Swedru

A rainstorm that hit Agona Swedru in the Agona West district of the Central Region Sunday afternoon has left 32 persons in critical condition as the buildings they were in collapsed on them.

The injured include 15 Sunday school children of the Voice of the Lord Church who had their church building totally brought down by the rainstorm trapping the children in the process.

It took effort from officers from the Fire Service, the police and other persons from the area to rescue the children who are currently on admission at the Agona Swedru Government Hospital and Lins Clinic all in the the town.

Several other houses also had their roofs ripped off with some collapsing completely injuring the occupants during the rainstorm which the police say could have had its impact reduced if there were enough trees in the area serving as wind breaks or barriers.

The entire township has since being plunged into darkness as a lot of cables and electrical poles were brought down by the rainstorm.
