Man falls from Tamale interchange; suffers life-threatening injuries (video)
A middle-aged man has fallen off from the newly commissioned Tamale Interchange, in the Northern Regional Capital.
It is suspected that the man attempted suicide but miraculously survived the incident with life-threatening injuries.
In a less than a minute video sighted online the man who many suspect is mentally deranged, is seen jumping from a height of the interchange amidst creams from residents and landing on the floor.
He however did not die and was rushed to the Tamale Central Hospital for treatment according to some onlookers who wondered what the motivation for the act was.
Police in Tamale confirmed the incident to MyNewsGh.com and disclosed that they are investigating the matter and are yet to take a statement from the man who is yet to be identified.
In April this year, residents raised concerns about how pedestrians, especially schoolchildren, have turned the dual-carriage interchange into a walkway and playground.
Although members of the Tamale Metropolitan Assembly (TaMA) taskforce are sometimes deployed to the interchange and surrounding areas to ensure order, the situation returns immediately they close from work.
The Tamale interchange is about one kilometre long and links Kumasi Road through the Point 7 road, the Central Taxi Rank, Central Market intersection with Melcom Road and Bolgatanga Road.
