.The Takoradi main railway station turned into a scene of horror for hundreds of  pedestrians, hawkers and motorists on Tuesday morning when a passenger train ran over a 28-year old man. The train was returning to Takoradi after earlier carrying passengers to the city. An eye witness who only gave his name as Kofi Sagoe, narrating the incident said the boy had been standing on pile rocks a few feet from the rail line. And on seeing the looming danger tried to cross over to the other side of the line but fell into the rails. The train amid tooting of horns crashed into him, severing his head completely and leaving his mutilated body still stuck in the rails. According to the eyewitnesses who sent us videos and pictures from Takoradi, the Ghana police service and Ghana ambulance service were immediately called to the scene.
