Two nursing trainees at the Asankragua Midwifery and Training College have met their untimely death a few hours after reporting to school on Saturday, January 15.

Priscilla Antwi Williams, a Level 300 student and her Level 200 counterpart, Ellen Ayitey Ansah, had gone to town to braid their hair and get some food items.

The two were crushed to death while returning to campus aboard a tricycle, popularly known as ‘Pragya’ by a grader machine.
