A Basic Four pupil of the Atokooso MA School close to Wassa Dunkwa in the Amenfi West Municipality in the Western Region, Frank Aidoo, who was involved in an accident with nine other mates and a master, has had one of his hands put in a Plaster of Paris (POP) at the Asankragua Catholic Hospital due to the severity of his injuries.

Morning Show Host of Ahobrase FM at Asankragua Kakyire Kofi Badu, in an interaction with Connect FM, said Frank is responding to treatment.

He narrated that 10 pupils from the Atokooso MA School and their master sustained various degrees of injury last Friday when the “Aboboya” they were traveling in from Wassa Dunkwa back to their village overturned as the driver attempted to swerve a pothole.

“The pupils and their Master arrived at Wassa Dunkwa at about 8:00am in an Aboboya to write the NST. They waited for hours but their papers did not come. So they had to go back. It’s about 30 minutes drive. Unfortunately, the road is so terrible and full of potholes. And according to the driver, he was trying to dodge a very big pothole. He was not successful as the Aboboya overturned and fell, trapping the pupils, the master and the driver.

“They were rushed to the Wassa Dunkwa Clinic for First Aid. But the wounds were severe and so some had to be transferred to the Asankragua Catholic Hospital and that included Frank.”

He explained that the Amenfi West Municipal Director of the Ghana Education Service, Solace Osei Appiah, and other officials visited the injured Friday night and the following day at Asankragua to sympathise with them.
