A 12 year old boy and a Chinese national described as a friend have drowned in a stream at Fahiakobo in the Amansie Central District in the Ashanti Region.
The Class Five pupil, Yaw Boakye, and the 50 year old man, identified only as ?JJ?, had gone fishing late afternoon last week Tuesday when the tragedy occurred.
Sources in the community tell Nhyira News the Chinese national picked the young boy as usual from his house in the afternoon on their expedition.
The boy reportedly slipped into the water, and in an apparent attempt to rescue him the Chinese also fell.
Local police have confirmed the incident which is still under investigation.
The bodies of the deceased have been deposited at the Konfo Anokye Teaching Hospital morgue for autopsy.
