Bui Dam Disaster: 8 still missing

The rescue deployed to search for the remaining eight who went missing in the Bui Dam found only a wrecked boat with dead mammals leaving the eight still missing.

The eight were among 33 persons onboard the boat that capsized in the Bui reservoir on Friday, near an upstream village called Accra Town, after it developed a fault with its outboard motor.

Twenty five of the passengers were found by the Ghana Navy led-Search mission while the eight are still missing.

“The Navy went there this morning[Saturday] and searched the whole day but they saw nothing except wrecked boat with dead animals in it,” the PR Manager of Bui Dam Authority, Chery Lawson-Adamu reported, adding search and rescue efforts continue for the missing persons Sunday.

He indicated that it will be difficult for the eight to survive because no human being can survive beyond 30 minutes underwater.
