About 16 people have reportedly died in an accident at the Kintampo Water fall in the Brong Ahafo Region.

According to reports, the accident occurred at about 4.30pm on Sunday [March 19, 2017], when a huge tree run off the top of the water fall, descending on the dozens of visitors who were swimming beneath the fall.

Information we have gathered indicate that the tree fell as a result of a heavy rainstorm and winds in the area.

Officials of the Ghana National Fire Service and the Ghana Police Service were reportedly spotted at the scene trying to rescue persons suspected to be trapped under the tree.
