‘Later in the day at 1300 hours, when we were in class, Hilda placed her head on the desk for quite a long time, so one of our Mathematics teachers who happened to be present asked us to wake her up, only for us to realise she was not breathing and also had a foamed from her mouth’, a classmate of Hilda told the GNA pleading anonymity.

The source said the teacher with the help of some students and the senior house master rushed her in one of school buses to the Akatsi District Hospital for treatment, where she was pronounced dead by the medical authorities at the facility.

Some of the students who spoke to the GNA on condition of anonymity complained that the school was without an infirmary to take care of first Aid cases on Campus.

‘It is high time our authorities treated the infirmary issue with urgency just like they treat issues with regards to schools not having teachers, Hilda could have been alive if she was given the necessary treatment on time’, the source added.

Although GNA placed some calls to find their side of the story, workers at the hospital were reluctant to speak, claiming they were junior Officers and were therefore not competent to react to the issue immediately.

The contacted officer, however, gave the assurance that the hospital would come out with their side of the story after an autopsy.

Hilda Terkpor according to GNA source would be laid to rest on Tuesday 5th December 2017.
