Family of Axim blast victims cry for help
7/4/2012 6:00:50 PM -
The family of the two remaining survivors of the recent pre-mix fuel blast in Axim have made a passionate appeal for help in paying the hospital bills of their loved ones.
19 persons have so far died after a premix fuel tanker exploded into flames on Friday June 22. The explosion is believed to have been caused by a generator which was being used to provide power for the distribution of pre-mix due to power outage. Witnesses say an exposed cable burst into flame, leading to the explosion.
The two survivors are on admission at the Korle Bu Teaching Hospital. Family members say they are finding it well-nigh impossible to foot the huge bills. An average of Ghc 500 (five million old cedis) is required per day, according to the family members.
