A six-year-old missing child was drawn from a gutter near a public toilet at Wenchi in the Brong Ahafo region Tuesday 18th July 2017 around 6 pm after a heavy downpour.

An eyewitness who gave his name as Taller said the child fell into the gutter when it was raining. According to him, the 6-year-old was unconscious after they had drawn him out of the gutter, so they rushed him to the Methodist hospital in Wenchi where he was resuscitated.

The boy after gaining consciousness said he had visited a friend after school and was on his way back home when the rain started. He said in his bid to cross the gutter, he fell into it and was taken away by the water.

“The boy is in good condition now, but he will be on admission for some time before he is discharged.” The doctor in-charge of the victim said.
