The tragedy

The 44 years old Abena Araba who was pregnant, died while on the way to hospital to seek medical attention after she slipped and fell in a bathhouse.

Due to the severity of the situation, it was necessary that she be rushed to the hospital, but the drivers in the area refused to convey her on basis of the poor road network.

Her helpers as a result resorted to the use of tricycle to transport her to the health facility but midway through their journey, the tricycle fell off a bridge made out of coconut trunks leading to her death.
