Two nurses at the Ridge Hospital in Accra died from last Wednesday’s torrential rains that flooded parts of Accra, Medical Director of Ridge Hospital, Dr. L. A. Obeng has confirmed.

The two [name withheld] were on their way to work when they met their untimely death.

“Two of our staff because of their dedication to duty lost their lives while on their way to work. As I have always been saying, greater love is when a man lays his life for his fellow man.

"We believe that once they died in the line of duty, the good God will give them a place in the bosom of Abraham,” Dr. L. A. Obeng said.

Over 200 people are reported dead while properties running into millions of cedis have been destroyed by the torrential rains that fell for over three hours.

Some people who had gathered in front of a Pharmacy Shop at the Kwame Nkrumah Circle near the Goil Filling Station adjacent to the GBC Towers to seek for refuge from the heavy downpour unfortunately lost their lives following a fire outbreak at the Goil filling station.
