Crushed To Death On Railway

train headAn unidentified youngman was crushed to death by a train in Takoradi Wednesday morning as he strolled on the rails sniffing what is suspected to be narcotics at the Takoradi Train Station.

The deceased was with two friends who escaped unhurt.

Eyewitness Frank Ali told XYZ News that the deceased appeared not to have heard the loud horn of the oncoming train because he was busily taking in snuff.

The deceased is believed to be a dock worker at the Takoradi Port.

The Takoradi Marine and Railway Police have confirmed the gory accident and have been to the scene to begin investigations. The body has since been conveyed to the Effia Nkwanta Regional Hospital Mortuary in Sekondi.

ASP Charles Osei of the Marine Port and Railway Police told Ultimate Radio, there is very little information about the deceased in the meantime. He said police are yet to contact eyewitnesses to give an account of how the accident occurred.

“At the moment we have not confirmed if he is indeed a dock worker or perhaps a worker on the train. We just had the information that somebody had been run over at the train yard. But what we are doing now is to do the necessary things and begin investigations to establish the identity of the person.
