Info gathered by Pazion Media indicates that a six (6) year old boy has drowned in a manhole pit.
The sad incident happened at Bonsu Nkwanta in the Juaboso District of the Western North Region.
The disheartened incident happened on Wednesday around 4 pm.
According to an eyewitness account, the deceased whose name is yet to be known was playing with his friends of the same age around the pit in the evening.
Unfortunately, the ball they were playing with fell into the pit which compelled the six-year-old boy to get into the pit to get the ball back but unfortunately on his part he was unable to climb top again which led him to drown in the pit.
As his colleagues realized their friend was battling to survive, they shouted for help and when people got to the scene the little boy has sadly passed out.
Mr . Osei Sarpong is the father of the deceased. The mother of the deceased passed away a few years ago.
The body of the deceased has been conveyed and deposited at Juaboso Gov’t Hospital for autopsy and preservation.
The investigation is ongoing by Juaboso Police to determine the actual cause of the incident.
