A few months ago, Ghanaians were hit with one of the most tragic incidents which took the lives of a number of children who lived in the Apam community.
The incident occurred on a Sunday around 5 pm when children between the ages of 14 and 17 years went through an illegal route to a lagoon to have a fun time in a water body which was restricted from being used on that day.
Per Information gathered by Tapnewsgh, as the children were having a happy moment in the lagoon, a heavy tidal wind blew to their territory and carried them away to the deepest parts of the lagoon thereby drowning them.
The Apam District Police Commander, Deputy Superintendent of Police(DSP) Mr. Moses Osakonor said his team got the information Monday 8 March 2021 and rushed to the scene to see if they could rescue any survivor.
After the rescue team arrived, two of the children were rescued and were receiving treatment at a hospital in Apam named St. Luke Catholic Hospital.
The two survivors during their stay at the hospital, assisted the police in their investigations.
