A 45-year-old woman identified as Maame Adwoa, slipped and fell into a community reservoir when she attempted to fetch water leading to her death at Anomabo.

Mr Eric Arthur, Central Regional Director of Communications of the National Disaster Management Organisation (NADMO), confirmed the tragedy to Ghana News Agency.
