Four men were electrocuted at Anwomaso Bebre near Ejisu in Ashanti district.
The men – a father, son, and two others – were erecting scaffolding to work in the three-story home.
“In their attempt to move the metal structure from one end to the other, an eyewitness told Air News correspondent Kofi Addo Dumphy,” the tip accidentally touched a strong line of tension, which led to an electric shock.
Other eyewitnesses said the scaffold folded back and fell onto the highly-tense wires.
The four victims were between 21 and 45 years old.
