A one-and-a-half-year-old boy who was playing with his siblings at Atasamanso, a suburb of Kumasi in the Ashanti Region, has drowned in a well.

The mother of the victim, Serwaa Abrafi, said her child was rescued after half-an-hour of the incident and rushed to the Atasamanso hospital but was confirmed dead on arrival by medics.

The incident occurred on Tuesday evening when the victim accidentally slipped and fell into the partially covered well when he attempted to mount it.

The body of the deceased was later taken to the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital for preservation and autopsy.
