Body of sixth person swept away by flood at Esereso retrieved

The victims were swept away by flood

Body of a sixth victim of last night's flood disaster at Esereso Adagya in the Ashanti Region has been found by divers.

The deceased, grown up male who is yet to be identified was with five other people in a vehicle that was swept away by moving water in an attempt to cross a collapsed bridge.

The six people were drowned in the Ankonim Stream at Adagya Esereso in the Ashanti Region after a saloon car in which they were travelling was washed away.

With the help of NADMO and police personnel, five bodies were retrieved from the river last night.

The body of the sixth person believed to be the driver of the vehicle could not be found at the time.

The Ankonim Stream was said to have overflowed its banks on Thursday after heavy rains and blocked the only access road to other communities.
