In one of the videos, many onlookers who rushed to the scene to offer help are spotted trying to go through the rubble to find survivors. But tried as they did, they could not do much as they lacked the necessary equipment.
In another video, one of the people who were trapped under the rubble had been rescued by the personnel of Ghana National Fire Service who had arrived at the scene. The rescued man looked very weak with visible injuries while he was brought off a stretcher onto the ground awaiting a vehicle to be sent to the hospital. The church collapse at Adabraka comes just three months after a similar incident happened at Akyem Batabi in the Eastern Region. As reported by YEN.com.gh, a multi-storey church building has collapsed on worshippers while they were having a church service. The collapsed building trapped over 100 people who were worshipping at the time with 22 people being confirmed dead.
