Three adolescents last Friday drowned in a pit at Nsakina, near Amasaman, in the Ga West District of the Greater Accra Region.

The victims were said to have gone to the pit, a former site of Sonitra, an Israeli construction company, to swim even though they were advised against it.

Police said that a search party, made up of some residents of the area and family members, found two of the bodies after about three hours of search.

The third body was found a day later.

The bodies of the victims have since been deposited at the Nsawam Government Hospital pending further investigations.
