Eight school children drowned in the Volta Lake on Monday after a canoe on which they were traveling to school capsized at Wayokope, a fishing community.   

The children, numbering 20, were crossing the lake from Atigagome, also a fishing community in the Sene East District of the  Region when the disaster occurred.  

However, some fishermen around the lake were able to rescue 12 of the children.  

“The only school at Atigagome just collapsed and for some time now the school children had been crossing the lake by themselves with the canoe because one of them is good at using the canoe,” Mr Tocha said.
