Man falls from 3rd floor to death


A man, believed to be in his late 20s, fell from the third floor of a four-storey building to his death in Kumasi early Thursday.

The man, identified only as Nana Osei, unemployed, fell on a waste collector who was then descending from an alley, before hitting the ground with his head.

He died instantly.
The incident, which occurred at Adum around 9:40 a.m, attracted many people to the scene.

At the time of filing this report, it was not clear if the incident was a case of a suicide or an accident.

Nana Osei, who, according to eyewitnesses, appeared to be drunk, had returned from the wake of a dead friend.

He even had the funeral bill of the deceased friend, Isaac Osei, pinned to his breast pocket.

According to Dauda Alhassan, the waste collector, he was doing his usual rounds of collecting waste from the offices in the vicinity for disposal when Nana Osei, out of the blue, fell on him.

He said although he felt some pain in his neck when Nana Osei fell on him, he had to run away because he was scared, leaving behind his wheelbarrow and the waste.

 Ms Vida Sarpong, who identified the deceased, said he was the younger brother of her husband.

According to Ms Sarpong, Nana Osei neither had any mental problem nor did he show any suicidal tendencies.

Meanwhile, the body of the deceased has been conveyed to the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital (KATH) mortuary, while the Kumasi Central Police have taken over investigations into the incident.
