A woman whose identity is not yet known died in the commercial vehicle in which she had boarded with her two-year-old daughter on Thursday.
The Nyamoransa police who confirmed the story said the deceased was traveling from Fosu in the Central Region to Takoradi in the Western Region when the unfortunate incident happened.
Police Inspector Liberty Kobla told Adom FM’s Kafui Justice that other passengers in the car said they were waiting at the Fosu station for the vehicle to get full to start their journey when the deceased left her child to use the bathroom.
Upon her return from the bathroom, she called a pure water seller to buy water, but before the seller could get to her, she fainted and died on the spot.
The Inspector said the deceased was not carrying any form of identification or a cell phone for the driver or passengers to contact anyone. They, therefore, reported the incident to the police.
The deceased is reported to be between the ages of 35-40 years, dark in complexion and was carrying plantain in a sack.
The little girl is with the Nyamoransa police while they wait for the family of the deceased.
The police are pleading with the general public to assist in locating the family of the deceased.
The body has since been deposited at the Interbentil Teaching Hospital in Cape Coast.
