Hassan Kamara, a poultry worker at Modcon Poultry, Macdonald village, Waterloo, suffocated to death inside ‘a very deep water well’ after he attempted to rescue his neighbour, Ali Bangura, who also tried to rescue a duck that fell inside the said well.

The National Fire Force has removed the corpses of both men (Hassan Kamara and Ali Bangura) from the said well.

Despite several efforts, the National Fire Force team could, however, not remove the said duck from the said well.

Speaking on conditions of anonymity, some people have described the said duck as being ‘possessed’.

The corpses of both men have been conveyed to the Connaught Hospital mortuary for post-mortem examinations.
