Bright Owoahene Acheampong, a young man, died while attempting to rescue 300ghc from an abandoned well.
The tragic tragedy occurred in Meduma, a village in Ghana’s Ashanti Region’s Kwabere East District.
The 22-year-old slid into the abandoned well after his mother tossed 300ghc down the hole while disposing of rubbish.
Residents claim that since it was abandoned due to its inability to deliver water, the dry well has turned into a trap.
Bright Owoahene Acheampong, nicknamed Akwasi Broni, screamed for help at the top of his lungs as soon as he fell into the well.
After hearing her son’s calls for help, neighbors were brought to the site.
A nearby resident was also killed by the well when he attempted to flee.
A couple residents called the National Fire Service because things were getting out of hand.
The two other victims were saved by officers from the Mampongteng police station, but Akwasi Broni was unable to be saved.
Shortly after the two of them got at the hospital, Akwasi Broni was pronounced dead.
According to investigations, the mother of the deceased advised him to keep away from the abandoned well before attempting to rescue the 300ghc, but he disregarded her advice.
After the incident, residents are calling for the well to be closed up.
