Ghostly punches scatter rescue mission

Personnel of the Ghana Fire Service have aborted a rescue mission for two bodies said to have drowned mysteriously in a well in Akrodie in the Brong Ahafo Region.

The two middle aged men allegedly drowned in an attempt to rescue a dog which had fallen into the well.

Efforts to retrieve the dead bodies by the Fire Service personnel have proved futile, at least for now, with the men making even more mysterious claims.

They have disembarked because the leader of the rescue mission said he received ‘ghostly punches’ on the two occasions he attempted descending into the well to retrieve the bodies.

“Half way the exercise, the one who was leading the rescue team going into the pit, said something had punched his buttock so he cannot go in again. He made two attempts, the first one he said he had that punch but it was not that hard so he thought it was a normal thing.

So he started going in the second time, and the second time the punch which he had, was a very severe one, so as a result when he came out he was even limping so he said he can’t go in again,” a personnel of the Fire Service in the region Sarfo Sarkodie narrated the fear of his men in an interview with Joy News’ Bernard Saibu.

Asked where the punch was coming from, Mr Sarkodie said “nobody knows.” He said another man early on Saturday had attempted to retrieve the bodies but screamed to be pulled out midway into the well, citing similar blows.

A reporter, Lawrence Mensah of Nananom FM, a local radio station in the area said a fetish priest had warned that anybody who attempted to retrieve the two bodies will suffer similar fate of death. Even though the MCE of the area had directed that the two bodies be retrieved, the person to carry out the order remains to be known.
