- The school authorities at the Ghana National College have disclosed more details about the death of a first-year-student, Ruby Teiko
- According to them, they did their best under the circumstances, but it was of no help
The school authorities at the Ghana National College (GNC) have reacted to the news of the death a first-year-student, Ruby Teiko.
The headmistress of the school, Juliana Owusu-Ansah stated that they did their best but they could not save her life.
"To the best of our knowledge, we did the best we could", the headmistress said, and expressed sympathy for the grieving parents.
The father of the deceased student, Amanor Okine, has accused the school of negligence leading to the death of his daughter.
According to him, he is considering a suit because prior to his daughter’s admission to the school, he provided her medical records which ruled her out of dust-related work.
This information was reportedly ignored by the authorities and as such Ruby was compelled to partake in chores done by students.
Ruby complained of breathlessness and chest pains during a routine inspection on Saturday, May 19, 2018, and was given first aid.
She was then rushed to the hospital, but was pronounced dead on arrival.
