    Central Region: Dozens trapped, others feared dead in collapsed mining pit

    Dozens of miners are reported trapped in an illegal mining pit that collapsed on Wednesday, May 26, 2021.

    The incident occurred at Denkyira Breman/Brofoyedur, a community in the Upper Denkyira West District of the Central Region.

    Citi News sources say at least three of the people pulled out of the wreckage are feared dead, including a victim believed to be 10 years old.

    Frantic efforts are still being made to rescue those trapped.

    This comes at a time when the government has renewed the fight against all forms of illegal small-scale mining by burning excavators and other mining equipment in forest reserves and on water bodies.
