A concrete slab of a house in the Sekondi-Takoradi metropolis which caved in, has resulted in the death of a young man at the European Hospital.
Asked whether the family had a case to answer for refusing to report the incident promptly to the police, Mr Donkor answered in the negative, saying that they would have been held liable if they had failed to report it, but once they finally reported it, there was no trouble.
At New Takoradi, Dora Mensah, a trader, told the Daily Graphic that she and her three children — Gloria Quarshie, 21; Ebenezer Kumah, 15, and Wisdom — were asleep when she heard a big bang. She woke up suddenly, only to see Wisdom writhing in pain.
She explained that Wisdom had been sleeping with his elder brother in the neighbourhood of Poasi, where they lived, but he came around to spend the night with them on Monday, June 6, when the incident occurred.
She said together with some sympathisers who came out, she looked for a taxi to send him to the European Hospital, where he was quickly given one set of infusion, but his condition got worse and he passed on about 1 a.m.
According to Dora, Wisdom was buried last Saturday.
