It was a sad and heartbreaking moment when bodies of four boys who got drowned at the Bosumtwi-Sam Fishing Harbour in Sekondi last Sunday were laid to rest on Thursday, November 29.
This was after a burial service had been held for them at Ketan in the Sekondi-Takoradi Metropolis.
The four got drowned when they attempted to rescue another person who was allegedly drowning in the sea.
According to a report YEN.com.gh sighted on Adomonline.com, the deceased were part of about 15 youths who had gone to the Skyy Beach Haven, near the fishing harbour, to have fun that day.
The names of the deceased, all residents of Ketan near Sekondi,were identified as as Frank Amankwaa aka ‘Juju,’ and 18-year-old form three student of a senior high school in Sekondi and Joseph Bonful, 20, former student of a technical school in Takoradi.
The rest are Agya Ackon, aka “Off” and one Evans, who was a welder at Ketan, near Sekondi.
Surprisingly, the person the four persons attempted to rescue, whose name was given only as Julius, 19, and a member of a local brass band group, survived.
Julius is currently receiving treatment at the Effia Nkwanta Regional Hospital in Sekondi.
This accident comes just a few days after YEN.com.gh reported the deaths of five schoolgirls from Assin-Atobease who were run over by an articulator truck while they were attempting to cross the Yamoransa-Kumasi Highway which passes through the town after closing from school.
The burial of these girls, one week after their accident, was also a sad and heartbreaking spectacle.
