“In their attempt to move the metal structure from one end to the other, the tip accidentally touched a high tension line, leading to the electrocution,” an eyewitness told Joy News’ reporter Kofi Adu Domfeh.

Other eyewitnesses said the scaffold bent backwards and landed on the high-tension wires.

The four victims are between the ages of 21 and 45 years.
