Three teenagers drowned in the White Volta when they were returning from the campaign launch of a National Democratic Congress (NDC) parliamentary candidate at Daboya in the Northern Region last Sunday evening.
The three deceased persons have since been buried, while four persons who were rescued are responding to treatment.
The Northern Regional Police Public Relations Officer (PRO), Assistant Superintendent of Police (ASP) Mr Ebenezer Tetteh, who briefed the radioxyzonline source in Tamale yesterday, said the incident occurred after the boat on which they were travelling capsized midway through the journey.
He said the local rescue team was able to retrieve the bodies of the three and also save the lives of four others.
As of the time of filing this report, the police were yet to make public the identities of the four rescued persons.
