A 34-year old driver’s mate is paralysed after he fell-off from a tipper truck in August this year.
The victim, Hans Ansah told Adom FM’s Dwaso Nsem Tuesday he twisted a leg and fell on the ground after initially ignoring warnings to use a ladder to alight from the truck.
“I went to work that fateful day as driver’s mate on tipper truck. We are used to using ladder to get down from the truck but on that fateful day, I didn’t use it so I fell down from the truck. I initially felt some sharp pain but quickly got up and continued my work.
“Later in the evening that day, I felt a little pain so I bought an ointment and applied it only to get worse after some days,” he narrated.
Hans has since been bedridden with excruciating pains in the back and neck.
His mother, Auntie Irene recalled how she pleaded with doctors to attend to her son to ease the pain whilst at the hospital.
But he has had to endure pain because there is no money for treatment.
Auntie Irene revealed the family’s inability to raise GH 80,000 for surgery means her second born will continue to endure pain.
She has therefore appealed to the public to come to his aid. Adom TV’s Afia Amankwah Tamakloe has also joined the campaign to save Hans Ansah’s life.
