Some residents of Alajo in Accra rescued a young man who was drowning in a large drain after heavy rainfall caused severe flooding in the area on Sunday.

Sources said the quick response and teamwork of some members of the community saved the man from imminent drowning.

Information available to DAILY GUIDE said the man, who was attempting to cross the big drainage at Alajo, accidentally slipped and fell into the strong currents.

Some residents who saw the man struggling to get out of the currents quickly called for assistance of neighbours to help rescue the man.

DAILY GUIDE sources said three men who courageously jumped into the flood waters were unable to rescue the young man until other bystanders joined to rescue him and the three others.
