According to report from Ghanaian police, the students were swimming during a storm when the freak accident happened. 22 others were injured and are being treated at local hospitals.
Rescue teams used chainsaws to cut through the fallen tree and free those trapped underneath. An eyewitness said most of those involved were students of the Wenchi Senior High School, but that there were also tourists.
