Bright Owoahene Acheampong, a young guy, was tragically killed while trying to rescue 300ghc from an abandoned well. He was just 24 years old.
The tragic tragedy occurred in Meduma, a village in Ashanti’s Kwabere East District.
The 22-year-old went down the abandoned well after his mother poured 300ghc into it while discarding the trash, according to the information acquired by the police.
Residents claim that the dry well has turned into a trap after it was abandoned since it was unable to generate water as expected.
Bright Owoahene Acheampong, also known as Akwasi Broni, cried for aid when he fell into the well.
Her mother heard her son’s cries and asked for aid from her neighbours. The well claimed another victim when a local attempted to jump in.
As the situation worsened, several locals sought assistance from the National Fire Service.
It was too late for Akwasi Broni, who was rescued by officials from the Mampongteng police station.
Shortly after the two arrived at the hospital, Akwasi Broni was tragically declared dead by doctors.
He ignored his mother’s warnings before trying to rescue the 300ghc from an abandoned well, which has since been confirmed by investigators’ findings
Residents are now pushing for the well to be covered up after the event.
