A pregnant woman in Nangruma in the Upper East Region has had a miscarriage after it took several hours to get her to the hospital.

The woman was being transported from her community to access healthcare from the neighbouring community.

She, however, had to be carried across a river by some men in order to continue her journey to the health facility.

In a video that went viral on social and mainstream media over the weekend, the young men were are seen carrying a motorbike with which she would be transported across the river.

After that, they crossed the river back to where the pregnant woman was, carried her in a cane chair and chauffeured her across the river to the motorbike where the rider will continue the journey with her.

All the while, the one who shot the video laments about the terrible nature of their plight.

He cries that the community has a health centre that has been completed but hasn’t been commissioned.

“Aren’t we part of Ghana…look at how we are suffering here at Nangruma. We have a health facility here but they won't come to commission it for us,” he cries.

After going through that torturous experience, she gave birth to a dead body.

Meanwhile, the Member of Parliament for the area, Ibrahim Tanko has blamed the halt of progress on the health facility at Nangruma on the change in government, arguing that change in leadership always affects ongoing projects.
