A six-year-old girl (name withheld) at Kwadaso Municipality in the Ashanti Region of Ghana, has drowned in an attempt to collect her slippers that had fallen into an open drain.

The girl slipped and fell into an open drainage in the newly created municipal and she was carried away by the flowing water which resulted in her death, reports Daily Guide Africa.

The body of the young girl was later retrieved and deposited at a morgue at a medical facility for autopsy.

Kwaku Asanka, an eyewitness, disclosed that the bereaved family is totally shattered, following the loss of the young girl.

He said “It was raining heavily at Kwadaso on that fateful Thursday afternoon and the six-year-old girl and her friends were playing.”

Kwaku Asanka noted that a certain man in the area saw the six-year-old girl playing barefooted; he told her to go and wear slippers.

The young girl obliged, and while playing with her friends, one of her slippers fell into the flooded gutter.

It was in the attempt to rescue it that the girl slipped into the drainage and was carried away.
