Little child allegedly drowned and d!ed during last night flood in Kumasi, adepanews.com has been reliably informed.
Because it was nightly, it made it even more worse as some drivers drove unknowingly into ditches covered by rainwater.
As at the time of writing this post this morning, heavy rainfalls had started in some parts of Kumasi locking many in their rooms.
The toddler drowned at Sawaba near Affordable Housing Estate in Kumasi after the downpour after alighting from a tricycle due to the nature of the rainfall.
The child decided to walk on foot but sadly drowned and all efforts to recover the body immediately failed leading to the death.
“I pulled the hand brake to stop the tricycle from moving. The passengers kept shouting in fear. They all got down immediately the tricycle stopped. That was when I saw them fall into the floodwater. It took some men to help them out but we didn’t get the child” the tricycle driver said.
