3 siblings – 3-, 4-year-old and 11-month-old burnt to death at Sefwi Bibiani


Three siblings Timothy Aseda Anna Ducan, 4, Shiverra Ducan, 3, and Debora Adom Nkrumah Ducan, 11 months old, have been burnt to death at Sefwi Bibiani in an area called Gyidimu in the Bibiani Anhwiaso Bekwai Municipal in the Western North Region.

The children lost their lives when their house caught fire on Wednesday at about 10 pm when they were sleeping.

The fire is believed to have started from the bedroom of the children.

Their mother, who realised that the bedroom was suddenly on fire, rushed out to cry for help while the husband had gone out to buy something.

The people who came around to help could not rescue the children because of the heat.

When the father returned, he asked for a wet blanket to cover himself, so, he could rescue his children but that attempt failed due to the heat from the inferno.

He also got burnt in the process and is currently receiving treatment at the Bibiani government hospital.

The deceased children have been deposited at the hospital morgue.
