A young man, believed to be about 25 years old, has allegedly drowned in the Volta river at a popular waterfront resort, Eli beach at Adidome in the Volta Region.

According to accounts, Goka Selorm (the deceased) went to the said resort with his friend to ‘while away time’ at about 5 pm on Thursday when the unfortunate incident occurred.

According to sources, they were cautioned by the security at the resort not to swim in the river.

A few moments later, the security man who was running errands received a distress call from the bar attendant about the drowning.

Reports indicate that the place the incident occurred was deep, a situation that might account for the sudden death.

“By the time people realised that he was in danger, it was too late,” an eyewitness told Citi News.
