Ghanaian Liverpool fan dies after win over Barcelona

A Ghanaian Liverpool fan, Hebert Danso Atiko, collapsed and died Tuesday night after his team Liverpool shocked Barcelona in a stunning 4-0 comeback in the Uefa Champions League semi-final.

According an eye witness who watched the game with the deceased said Danso was found lying on the floor unconscious immediately after jubilating over the fourth goal at a pub.

Water was poured on him to gain consciousness but he was motionless, an eyewitness expressed.

The final year Engineering student was rushed to the Akwatia St. Dominic’s Hospital where he was pronounced dead.

The Principal of Akwatia Technical School, Maxwel Owusu-Afriyie, confirmed the news adding his parents have been duly informed.

He was staying in a rented apartment outside the school campus.

He said the school has begun internal investigations over the issue.

“We will get the details and see if there was something the student did that suggest that his behavior was in excess. On that we can really talk to the students. We have a system in place where we talk to the students and their behavior these days,” Mr. Afriyie said.
