The father of one of the teenage boys who got drowned in the Apam incident, Seth Narh, has revealed that he had come to Ghana to take his son, Benjamin, with him to Spain.
He revealed that Benjamin was a twin, and he had plans far advanced to take the twins with him to Spain.
Narh disclosed that he had already purchased tickets for himself and the twin boys and their departure date was March 12, 2021, however, the unfortunate incident happened just a week before that.
The man is still in a state of shock as he cannot explain how he feels in words.
This is contained in a report sighted by YEN.com.gh on Adomonline.com.
Seth Narh said he has no option than to go to Spain with Benjamin's twin brother since he is the one left for him now.
He revealed that the incident has caused him to postpone the date of departure as the family is in a great state of shock at the moment.
The father, according to the report, was speaking at the mass burial programme organised on Tuesday, March 16, 2021, for the 13 bodies that have been retrieved so far.
In all, 23 boys went swimming on Sunday, March 7, 2021, when they all got drowned leaving just two behind.
One of the rescued boys narrated what led to their drowning.
The boy said while he and his friends were swimming, they saw beautiful and attractive ladies approach them.
He said they could not figure out if they were part of the ladies they had gone swimming with, and so they invited them over to join them in swimming.
Just then they saw heavy tidal waves that were beyond normal, wash some of them away.
He said while the “first batch” of the boys were taken away, the rest of them kept swimming until another powerful wave washed over them.
Many people have concluded that the 'strange' ladies in the boy's narration could be mermaids that carried them away to be killed.
