Swedru: Fire Officer Drowns While Rescuing 3 People From A Well
A fire officer with the Agona Swedru Fire Service in the Central Region has lost his life in an attempt to save 3 persons who were drowning in a well at Gomoa Obuasi in the Central Region. The deceased has been identified as Assistant Station Officer Mr Joseph Aidoo. All the three persons who were working on the well mistakenly
fell inside prompting community members to call the fire service for support. One of the fire service officers in an attempt to save the lives of the 3 persons trapped in the water got drowned in the process and died. The three persons were later removed from the well and are receiving treatment at the Agona Swedru Hospital. At
the family house of the late fire officer, it was all tears as his wife and other family members all mourned the loss. The District Chief Executive for the Gomoa Central Benjamin Kojo Otoo, who also paid a visit to the family house said the assembly, together with the Member of Parliament for the area, will ensure the fire officer gets a befitting burial since he died a hero.
