GRASAG tragedy: Body of student yet to be found after drowning

Police in the Central Region are investigating the circumstances that led to the drowning of two university students during a GRASAG conference in the region on August 16, 2018.

The body of one of the students Sarah Kwarteng of the University of Winneba is yet to be found while that of Lilian Ampofowaa Asiedu is in the University of Cape Coast hospital morgue.

At least three others are still on admission at the hospital.

Narrating how the incident occurred, the Central Regional Police PRO, DSP Irene Oppong told JOYNEWS the students had gone to Oasis beach near Cape Coast Castle to have fun and for sight-seeing but a strong tidal wave suddenly carried five of them away.

It took the intervention of residents to rescue all but the body of one student is still yet to be found.

Out of the four rescued, one of them later died at the hospital where they had been rushed to.

“Currently we have Faustina Akaime with the Kings University, Kasoa, Sharon Badonye, Methodist University, Dansoman and the Frank Boateng Garden City University Kumasi now on admission at the Cape Coast University hospital.

“The body of Sarah Kwarteng of the University of Education Winneba, Mampong campus has still not been found. Investigations are ongoing,” she said.
