Tamale: 72 collapsed during Independence Day parade – Red Cross Society

During the 67th Independence Parade at the Tamale Jubilee Park on March 6, a total of 72 individuals, including students, service personnel, and soldiers, collapsed due to severe dehydration exacerbated by the harsh weather conditions of the day.

The extended exposure to the scorching sun led to the collapse of the students and personnel who stood for hours during the event.
