The former second lady, Matilda Amissah Arthur has debunked rumours that her late husband, Paa Kwesi Bekoe Amissah-Arthur was put in a bucket of a pickup while he was transported the 37 Military Hospital when he collapsed at the gym.
In an interview with David Ampofo on “Time with David”, the Mrs Amissah-Arthur narrated events leading to the demise of her husband.
According to Mrs Amissah-Arthur, the former vice president was about finishing his regular training at the Airforce gym when he collapsed on the cross-trainer.
Explaining what happened the morning her husband passed, Mrs. Amissah-Arthur said “On Friday 29th June 2018, we got to the Airforce gym at 4.30 am, we did our exercises. We were almost through, he went on the cross-trainer being the last exercise that he would do and then he collapsed”.
The former lady added that a doctor at the gym, Dr. Naa Tagoe rushed to resuscitate him before a decision was taken to take him to the hospital.
Mrs Amissah-Arthur further added that the former vice president was still alive and in a stable condition throughout the trip to the hospital.
Even at the hospital, she said doctors who came to attend to him confirmed there was nothing wrong with the former Vice President and that she was surprised when later they broke the news of his death to her.
