Storey Building Collapses, Injures Four At Kasoa

 

At least four people have been reportedly injured after a two-storey building collapsed late Wednesday at Kasoa in the Awutu Senya East Municipality of the Central Region.

According to an eyewitness who spoke to Ghanacrusader.com, Two people have been left unconscious with the other two badly injured.

She explained that the incident happened during a heavy downpour in the area on Wednesday afternoon.

“I came out of my shop to cover my things when the rain started and suddenly saw part of the building collapse causing an injury to my leg. So I began screaming to draw attention to rescue a shop attendant and customer who had been trapped in the building,” she narrated.

Meanwhile, the Awutu Senya East Municipal National Disaster Management Organisation (NADMO) Director, Yaw Amoah, has disclosed that the owner of the building will be summoned on Thursday.

“I was going on an inspection and had to rush here when I heard of the collapse but when I came, I realized the structure of the building was not safe,” he said.

Two victims were rushed to the hospital for treatment while Miss Ataa and one other have been treated and discharged.
