SAD: 18-Year-Old Girl Swept Away In Flood, Dead Body Discovered At Tesano(Accra)
An 18-year-old girl, Mary, has been washed away by raging flood waters at Tesano in Accra.
The incident occurred on Sunday, 5 June 2022 during the 2-hour downpour.
According to eyewitnesses, the girl was trying to salvage her slippers, which fell into a small drain when she was swept away into a drain.
The girl is reported to have been lying down when a vehicle stopped to buy corn from her.
So she served the person, but while going back to sit down, her slippers fell off into the gutter, so the floods swept her away when she bent down to pick them up.
She was later found dead, in the drain after the rains.
The deceased was the fourth of four children.
