At Least 18 Killed in Ghana Waterfall Accident

ACCRA At least 18 people, most of them students, were killed and about 30 others injured after a tree fell on them at Kintampo waterfalls in central Ghana during a storm, the emergency services said on Monday.

The students were on a field trip on Sunday when a storm caused several trees to fall.

Sources from the Ghana National Fire Service said that 18 bodies had been recovered, although the death toll could still increase as efforts continued to rescue those trapped under the fallen tree.

In addition, 30 people were transferred to nearby hospitals with injuries.

Kintampo waterfalls are located on the Pumpum River in Brong Ahafo region, about 400 kilometers (248 miles) north of the capital.
