Two persons have died at Mpatuam Bontefufuo, a farming community in the Amansie West District after a ‘galamsey’ pit collapsed on them last night.

The deceased, Yaw Asiedu, 35, and 54-year-old Osei Kwame were mining in the restricted area when the dugout sand came crashing down.

Some colleagues, who rushed to the scene, found the pair buried underground.
