???????????????????????????????Tragedy struck the family of three sanitary workers when all the three brothers died instantly whilst trying to empty a septic tank Thursday morning.

The victims are suspected to have inhaled acid fumes from the underground septic tank on which they were working.

The tank, owned by Blancomet Recycling, a car battery recycling company at the Industrial Area in Accra is believed to contain poisonous liquids suspected to be acid.


The three on Thursday morning arrived at the scene with a liquid waste collection vehicle.

According to eyewitnesses, one of the brothers peered into the underground tank in the process of placing a tube to pull the waste.

He was however knocked unconscious.

His two brothers rushed to his rescue but suffered the same fate.

When’s David Andoh arrived at the scene, the bodies of the three had been covered by a white polythene whilst family members wailed and reeled on the ground.

Managers of the company will not speak to journalists about the incident.
