The deceased, Dr. Aya Hayfron was returning home from church but was trapped at a bridge on Teshie Bush Road and later got carried away by heavy flood waters.

Her husband said rescuers were unable to save the 32-year-old doctor but managed to save the two passengers who had been offered a lift by the deceased.

Her distraught husband, Bernard Kofi Agyei Oppong continued that the waters were up above his waist level but he determined to save her —he swam to her car, where a group of people was attempting to rescue her to no avail.

Moments later,  her vehicle slowly slid into a river with her trapped inside. Helplessly, he watched his wife disappear and that was the last time he saw her — until now that her body has been found.
