An accident occurred at Tema harbour’s transit yard around 5:00 p.m. yesterday, killing one person.
The deceased’s name is unknown at this moment, but he fell while loading a long vehicle.
According to a witness at the harbour transit yard, the long vehicle was meant to be loaded with products from two containers, but due to pressure from above, they had to load three instead of two.
As a result, workers loading the long vehicle are also able to load all three containers’ contents.
He didn’t die instantly because he hit the ground with his head. Others at the harbour’s transport yard try everything they can to keep their brother alive until an ambulance arrives, but they wait a long time and no ambulance arrives, so he dies.
