The incident, which occurred Sunday night, was believed to have been caused by strong wind.
According to her colleagues, Lydia woke up from bed and rushed to the corridor to pick her cooking utensils since it was about to rain. Within few minutes, they saw her slipped off to the ground. They quickly rushed to the scene only to find her unconscious with one of her legs damaged and blood oozing out from her nose.
In an interview with the PRO of the hall, Barnabas Ampiah said he heard students calling out for help so he rushed to the scene to find out what the problem was and it there that he was informed that the lady fell from the last floor of the building to the ground.
Meanwhile, the senior hall tutor had to carry the victim on a motor bike with the help of other students to the taxi rank for her to be conveyed to the Tamale Teaching Hospital since the University does not have an ambulance. The health officials at the university clinic also do not work in the night not even talking about weekends.
The PRO further confirms that the victim is responding to treatment and will soon be transferred to the University’s clinic. The SRC President and some few executives were there to sympathize and give support.
