VOINJAMA, Feb 25 (LINA) - A senior medical student of the Pentecostal Bible College in Voinjama died instantly Sunday, after falling off a piassava tree in Goila, a village situated several miles from the provincial capital Voinjama.

Mr. James Wosseh fell off the piassava tree when he climbed it to tap wine.

Mr. Wosseh who is believed to be in his early forties, is a prospective graduate of the Voinjama Pentecostal College where he studied medicine

He is said to have tapped and sold piassava wine in Voinjama for more than five years to support his academic ambition and sustain his family.

According to the Liberia News Agency Correspondent in Lofa County, the wife of the deceased, whose name was withheld, fainted after looking at her husband’s body lying under the town hall awaiting burial.

A family member, Korboi Nayango, told the Liberia News Agency Sunday evening in tears that the deceased was father of several children, all of whom were below 18 years.

Mr. Nayango pointed out that this has been the first time for such incident to occur in Goila Village.

Police investigation has revealed that there was no foul play in Wosseh’s death.

Meanwhile, the body of the late Wosseh was buried Monday in Goila Village, where hundreds of sympathizers and mourners converged to take part in the burial and funeral activities.
