One galamsey operator has been confirmed dead and nine others in critical condition after they lost air inside their pit near Kenyasi in Asutifi in the Brong Ahafo region.

Asutifi district divisional police commander, chief superintendent Emmanuel Amissah mentioned the deceased as Believer, 31. He was speaking to Joy News.

“Normally when they go into the pit there is a machine which provides ventilation and unfortunately the ventilator developed a fault and could not supply the people underground with air so they sensed the danger and rushed out of the pit,” he explained. He said Kwabena Akurigu was rushed to the Okomfo Anokye Teaching for intensive care.
