A man narrates how he watched as floodwater washed his wife away at Teshie Rasta in Accra.
Mr. Bernard Kofi Agyei Oppong said all efforts to recuse his wife, Dr. Aya Hayfron who was trapped in her Hyundia Accent saloon car proved futile.
Recounting his ordeal on a local radio station, Mr. Oppong said: “my wife was driving home from church with two other passengers around 10 pm when the incident occurred”.
He said the heavy floods swept away the vehicle after his wife who’s a doctor attempted to cross a bridge on a small river called Naa Pra.
The distraught husband said rescuers tried but were unable to save the 32-year-old doctor but managed to save the two passengers who had been offered a lift by her.
The car was found by the rescuers but she was not in the car.
“I know my wife is waiting for me somewhere. I believe she is alive and probably in a hospital”, he bemoaned.
He revealed they have a 15-month-old baby together and were hoping to enroll her in a school to enable his wife to go back to work.
He said he believes he is going to find his wife, he appealed to the general public who may have any information on the missing doctor to contact the police.
Meanwhile, the police in Teshie together with the Ghana National Fire Service are still searching for the missing doctor.
Teshie Police Commander, Superintendent Peter Yembilla said they will not stop the rescue mission until they find Dr. Hayfron.
