Master Simon Abanga, 24, a second year student of the Bolgatanga Technical Institute (BOTECH), died last week when he fell from the second floor of their dormitory.
Abanga who hailed from Tempane in the Bawku East District, has since been buried.
According to Mr. Martin Aloara, Principal of the Institute, some Muslim students who woke up at dawn last Wednesday to prepare for the Ramadan fast found Abanga lying postrate in a gutter below the dormitory.
He was rushed to the Bolgatanga Central Hospital but he died later.
According to the headmaster, that was the third incident of a student falling from the veranda of the second floor of the dormitory. It does not have any security fence.
In the first two cases, the students, a boy and a girl, survived.
