The deceased -Samuel Adu Parko – believed to be 30-years-old reportedly drowned Saturday June 8, 2019, but his body was retrieved Monday June 10, 2019, after a search by local divers under the supervision of personnel from the Police and National Disaster Management Organization (NADMO).

The body has been deposited at the morgue for preservation and autopsy.
