“I tried to find out from an elder from the community what actually happened, he told me the site caved in on Saturday around 2pm and some people were trapped and they tried to rescue those who were trapped with an excavator,” Yeboah said.

“By so doing, they had six people who were injured, and on the way to the hospital, three lost their lives and three were also sent to the municipal hospital,” he added.
