Eighteen people including 14 students died last Sunday, March 29 in a tragic incident which happened at the Kintampo Waterfalls.
Twenty people are confirmed dead and about 30 others injured at the Kintampo Waterfall in the Brong Ahafo Region of Ghana where a tree has fallen off the top of the waterfall to the ground. "They were swimming in the river when there was a storm, a windy atmosphere that had uprooted some of the trees", says a national fire service spokesman.
The First Lady Rebecca Akufo-Addo has said no amount of words can assuage the pain of the bereaved family in the Kintampo Waterfalls fatalities over the weekend.
11 others including a teacher were injured and are receiving treatment at the municipal hospital, he added.
The tree crushed students who were swimming in a pool at the base of the waterfall, local police chief Owusu Boampong told the BBC.
