The heavy downpour in Asante Akyem Dampong in the Ashanti region resulted in the deaths of two brothers who were returning from school.
The two boys drowned in a flood that flowed into the community’s main drainage system while enjoying the rain.
Some residents who witnessed the event told Adom FM that they both slipped into the water like lightning and had difficulty staying afloat.
An eyewitness and one of the people who helped find the children added that some young men went into the water to save the victim, but the pressure was too strong.
After diving to the drainage system, one of the children was spotted swept aside and the other was still swimming ahead.
Although they were recovered, it was too late to save any of them.
The district police arrived at the scene and took the bodies to the morgue for preservation and autopsy.
