13-year old girl killed after building collapsed on her


AKYEMANSA – 3-year old Eunice Brakuah lost her life instantly after a mud house collapsed on her in the Akyemansa district of the Eastern Region.

Eunice, was with her mother and sister in the 3-bedroom house Wednesday evening around 9pm when the incident occurred.

A portion of the building crushed her head killing her instantly. Her mother and sister survived with injuries to their legs.

The house collapsed following heavy downpour last night. The rains and strong winds exposed the weak structure of the building, resulting in its collapse.

The District police commander said other buildings in the area had their roofs ripped off. According to him, the building was weak and worn out and it could not have survived such a heavy down pour.

Eunice was a pupil in a government basic school in the district. Her body has since been deposited at the Oda Government Hospital for autopsy.
