In a rather bizarre incident, a television set on Sunday reportedly crushed a nine-year-old Ghanaian boy to death after falling on him.
Ghanaian media was awash with reports that Kwame Asamoah died after his family’s 34-inch analogue television fell on him while he was sleeping.
Adomonline reports that Asamoah was sleeping in the same room with his parents and younger siblings at their house located at Nsuaem in the Bosome Freho District of the Ashanti Region in Ghana when the tragic incident happened.
Describing how the incident happened, Asamoah’s father, Kofi Kennedy, said the boy who was sleeping on the floor had hit the table bearing the TV while he was changing his sleeping position.
Unfortunately, the television set slipped from the table and fell on him, crushing him to death.
