What started as a holiday rendezvous for an Accra based couple and their friends turned out to be a tragic event that the newly wedded wife would never forget in life.

Thirty-six year old Selasi Deku, who is a banker and a resident of East Legon, a suburb of Accra, met his untimely death at the Boti Falls, a famous tourist site in the Yilo Krobo Municpality of the Eastern Region on Wednessday, July, 1, 2015.

The tragedy occurred when he attempted to rescue his wife with whom he had travelled with to the place to celebrate the Republic Day, from drowning in the Boti Rover.

Snippets of information gathered by this paper indicate that the late Deku tied the knot with his better half barely three months ago and the couple visited the Boti Falls as part of their honeymoon celebration.

The wife decided to swim with some friends she met at the falls.

Moments after she jumped into the river, the deceased (husband) saw their newly wedded wife being carried away by the river.

Seeing the wife almost drowning, the husband jumped into the river to save her, but he rather got drowned, while his wife was rather saved by some good Samaritans.

After a few hours of searching, the deceased was retrieved by divers from a nearby village.

An eyewitness who spoke to The Chronicle on condition of anonymity indicated that Selasi and his wife together with some friends travelled from East Legon in the Greater Accra region to enjoy themselves on the Republic Day at the Boti Falls.

The body has since been deposited at the Koforidua Central Government morgye for autopsy.
