Galamsey pit claims life

A 22-year-old man has been reported dead after he fell into a deep galamsey pit, according to a police report.

The deceased, Akpi Isaac, reportedly, became extremely weak after he was rescued from the pit and rushed to the hospital, where a doctor pronounced him dead.

The unfortunate incident happened around 3:30 pm on February 14, 2024, at Asakraka, a community in the Ashanti Region.

So far, it’s not known whether Akpi was mining for gold when he fell into the pit or accidentally fell into the abandoned pit.

The police report said Azompok Ebenezer, 52, the elder brother of Akpi, who lives at Asakraka, reported the case to the Abrafo Kokoben Station.

He reported that on the same day about 3:30 pm, his junior brother, Akpi Isaac, now deceased, aged 22, fell into a galamsey pit at Asakraka.

Akpi, according to Azompok, was quickly rescued and rushed to Mount Sinai Hospital for treatment, but he was pronounced dead on arrival.

The police report noted that the body was later conveyed and deposited at the Mount Sinai Hospital morgue for preservation and autopsy.

The case, according to the report is still being investigated by the police.
