More than 20 students of the St. Martins Senior High School at Nsawam in the Eastern region have collapsed on campus.

In an interview with Accra-based Starr FM, a student said her colleagues collapsed Sunday night during Prep and Monday morning during assembly.

“We were at Prep last night when they were rushed outside but we didn’t take it serious. We were told some of them had asthma attacks but the rest we don’t know what happened to them before they also collapsed. This morning too, we were at morning assembly when some just fell off and were also rushed in a pickup to the hospital.”
