SHS student dies after falling from first floor at Wa Amass




-A 21 year-old form 2 business student of the Wa T.I Ahmadiyya Senior High School in the Upper West Region died after falling from the first floor of the dormitory block.

The student who is a native of Kachiau, a farming community in the Wa West District, has been identified as Kojo Issac.

Some students who said they saw him a moment before he died, while they were studying, told that at around 11pm on 11th February 2020 they saw Issac getting down from his bed and went outside the room when his mates were asleep.

According to them, they thought he had stepped out to go and urinate, only to hear a loud cry outside but they rushed outside to see Issac lying on the ground with a fractured neck.

The House One Prefect, known as Sei who is also the school father of Issac told he ate with Issac at around 10pm before they all went to bed that fateful day.

He said the Assistant Senior Housemaster quickly arranged a tricycle transport which is popularly called “Mahama camboo” in Wa to transport the boy to the Upper West Regional Hospital.

The boy was later transferred on Wednesday, 12 February 2020 to Tamale Teaching Hospital for further treatment but he died upon arrival.

He was buried on Friday, February 14, 2020 at Kachiau.

Sister of the deceased Matta Burgur lamented about the incident but said the family was informed about it Wednesday morning when he was being transferred to Tamale Teaching Hospital.

The authorities at the Wa T.I Ahmadiyya Senior High School would not comment on the issue when contacted.

Experts Advice

Meanwhile, spoke to some experts on what people can do to save lives in circumstances like the one that led to the death of the 21-year-old student.

The Head, Directorate of Trauma and Orthopedics, at Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital in Kumasi, Dr. Dominic Konadu-Yeboah explained that falling from a story building onto a hard floor constitutes high energy trauma.

This, he also said, exposes victims to a high chance of cervical spine injury.

While explaining what needs to done in such a situation, he indicated that, the head and neck of the victim should be held still, avoiding all injudicious movements.

“This is to prevent a fractured neck bone from compressing the delicate adjacent spinal cord, whose injury could cause acute respiratory failure and or sudden death or permanent paralysis (wheelchair bound)”

He said, in the case of Kojo Isaac, he should have been placed flat with face up and the neck supported by placing any suitable objects on either side of the neck that prevents rotation or side to side movement of the neck during transportation to hospital.

An Orthopedic surgeon at Tema General Hospital, Dr Odei-Ansong Francis said cervical spine injury especially when higher up the spine is likely to cause the death of most patients.

And when also transported in a bad position may also cause death.

He said edema or swelling around the cord can also contribute.

A Surgeon at St. Joseph Hospital at Koforidua in the Eastern Region Dr. Wilfred Addo also said spine injuries are the number one cause of early deaths in injuries.

“Therefore it should be the priority of transporters to protect the spine during the handling and transport of injured patients.”

He listed ways it can be done in order to help the situation:

Cervical spine protection in neck collar, move the patient in log roll on spine board, provide adequate resuscitation, transfer to level 1 trauma centre where there is a neurosurgical unit.



DEBUT ALBUM: Miriam Mandipira & The Soul Family




DEBUT ALBUM by Miriam Mandipira & The Soul Family!
You’ve never heard a voice like Miriam Mandipira’s. Undeservedly, she doesn’t take credit for the power or presence she delivers. For Miriam, music is much more than just notes and words. It’s
magic. And faith. You can experience it LIVE and on the album, which is set to be released on September 1st.

She has been singing for as long as she can remember, growing up with her ears glued to the radio.

From the moment her school teacher asked her to sing in class, the rest has been history. From Africa to Denmark, from Book Café in Harare to Mojo Blues Bar and the big concert halls. From
Danish Radio Big Band to the Royal Theater. Music is music, and Miriam is the music.

“But it’s not about me when I sing. I’m just the instrument, and when I’m on stage with my band, I sing from a place that’s not about rules and technique but about emotions,” says the singer, who is
seriously trying her hand at songwriting – together with her Soul Family on the album “Ndiwe”, which means ‘you are the chosen one of my heart.’ The overall message is impossible to ignore

“Call me a soul singer, call me a jazz singer. I don’t care. Good music is good music, and I love interpreting other people’s songs and being inspired. At the same time, I think it’s great to try my
hand at creating and writing the songs myself – and with my friends in the Soul Family, I have found my place. They are my family, and the curiosity and respect we share are fantastic.”

You can experience that up close when Miriam & The Soul Family take the stage. The enthusiasm for music and communication is impossible to ignore and hear.

“I love to maintain the feeling of being a child. It’s an excitement and curiosity that keeps me going, and that’s why I’m so excited about every single concert – no matter how small or large it is.

Otherwise, I would never do it. This is not just a casual thing. This is a life, and everything means something,” says Miriam, who began her years in Denmark by jamming at Mojo Blues Bar, building a network.
