Ambulance transporting pregnant woman in labour attacked, driver shot in the head

Information gathered by MyNewsGh.com indicates that a driver of an ambulance transporting a pregnant woman in labour to the Eastern Regional Hospital in Koforidua has been shot in the head by armed robbers.

The Ambulance with registration Number GV 644-20 went to pick the woman in preterm labour (31 weeks) from Akuse government Hospital to Eastern Regional Hospital since Akuse Hospital has no neonatal intensive care unit(NICU).

The driver is said to have bumped into an armed robbery operation but considering the situation of the pregnant woman, he decided to speed off.

The armed robbers infuriated by his disregard for their orders are said to have shot at the ambulance with bullets landing in the head of the driver.

Police Patrol upon getting wind of the operation rushed in and took the driver and the pregnant woman to the Tetteh Quarshie Memorial hospital.

The driver of the Ghana Ambulance Service has since been transferred to Korle Bu because his condition is critical.

Acting Public Relations Officer of the Eastern Regional Police Command, Sergeant Francis Gomado confirmed the attack but says the regional Command was awaiting a preliminary investigation report from the Somanya district command.
