Two nurses at the Ridge Hospital in Accra have been confirmed dead from last Wednesday’s torrential rains that flooded parts of Accra.
“They died in the line of duty,” Dr. L. A. Obeng, Medical Director of Ridge Hospital told Kasapafmonline.com in an interview Friday.
“Two of our staff because of their dedication to duty lost their lives while on their way to work. As I have always been saying, greater love is when a man lays his life for his fellow man.
“We believe that once they died in the line of duty, the good God will give them a place in the bosom of Abraham,” he said.
Their names were not immediately disclosed. Hospital officials say they would want to contact their relatives before given out their names.
The family of one of the late nurses, Kasapafmonline.com has learnt, has already been contacted and is headed to Accra from Nkawkaw to meet with authorities at the hospital.
