A woman believed to be in her mid-30s has drowned in a well at Atasemanso in Kumasi, Ashanti Region.
The body was found on Friday, 4 January 2019, when some residents went to fetch water from the well.
A pair of sandals, a phone and an amount of money belonging to the deceased, were found on top of the well, some residents told Adehye FM’s Elisha Adarkwah.
The body of the deceased has been retrieved by police and deposited at the mortuary. The deceased is yet to be identified.
“We have no idea how the woman got into the well because the opening in through which people fetch water from the well is very narrow. We are shocked at how she ended up in the well dead,” – One of the residents, Kofi De-Acquah told Adom FM’s morning show, Dwaso Nsem ON Friday
He suspects the woman may have fallen into the well several hours before her body was discovered on Friday morning, judging from its pale nature.
Chief Superintendent Cosmos Damoah, the Asokwa Divisional Police Commander, who visited the scene, said they had reports of the incident and rushed to the scene to convey the body to the mortuary.
