Nana Addo landed on his bottom and lost his spectacles when the stage caved in, TV 3 News’ Thomas Addotei Pappoe said.
Thomas Addotei Pappoe told Bright Nana Amfoh on News 360 Sunday, December 2, 2012 that Nana Addo is “safe and strong” to the extent that he addressed media personnel shortly after the accident.
He reports that an emergency medical team on stand-by quickly attended to the NPP presidential candidate and other dignitaries, who were then with him on stage.

Some of the supporters claim they saw them loosening some of the fatenings of the rostrum, Thomas said.
