At least two construction workers were killed by a falling wall in Ghana on Friday morning, and another one is in a critical condition, officials confirmed.
Seth Kissi, Coordinator for the National Disaster Management Organization (NADMO), while speaking to Xinhua, confirmed that one of the victims had died on the spot, while one more died on the way to hospital.
“The third person who is in a critical condition is receiving treatment at the Ashongman Community Hospital,” he said said.
Kissi said that the incident occurred at New Ashongman Estates, a suburb of the Ghanaian capital, is under investigation.
According to an eyewitness who also spoke to Xinhua, a construction firm, which was reshaping roads in the community, had left trenches so close to the walls along the roads.
“Each time it rains, we see the walls tilting towards the road, making it very dangerous. This morning, while three workers of the construction firm were working in the trench, the wall collapsed on them,” they said.
A combined team of officials from NADMO and the area’s local government later came in to demolish all the walls along the road under construction.
