According to the military man, he was returning from a funeral in Abukyensu, an area near Asamankese when he saw a woman standing in the middle of the road gesturing for help. After asking his driver to stop, he ordered him to assist the woman.
He continued that his driver disembarked the vehicle, followed the woman who led her into the farm where her husband was lying there unconscious. He narrated that his driver helped the woman carry her husband into the car and they rushed him to the Asamankese Hospital.
He said on reaching the hospital, the nurses at the Emergency Unit responded promptly and professionally when they were called upon to take care of the man and he just had to admire their effort.
