Starr News reports that the sad incident happened on Monday, March 19, 2018, when the victims left home to visit their grandmother.

Explaining the incident, a Unit Committee Member at Kwasi-Nyarko community Jacob Tawiah said the two deceased girls had left home in the company of another child and were heading for their grandmother’s house.

However, hours later they were found to have drowned in a relatively shallow well at about 5:30pm.

He said the third child began to cry after seeing her friends drown, attracting the attention of someone who was about to fetch water.

Further alarm was raised as more persons gathered to help retrieve the bodies of the girls from the well, but they were reported dead upon arrival at the Nsawam government hospital.
