State Attorney collapses after walking to court

A State Attorney, Rebecca Aryitey-Smith, Monday morning collapsed at the Criminal Court 4 after she is said to have walked from her office – the Attorney General’s Department – to the law court complex due to unavailability of a vehicle at the department.

Justice Charles Edward Ekow Baiden’s court was sitting when the incident happened in Accra, according to Starr News’ Court Correspondent Wilberforce Asare.

He said the sitting was quickly suspended as fellow lawyers in the court including a former Narcotics Control Board (NACOB) boss, Mr. Akrasi Sarpong, administered first aid to the state attorney until the paramedics stationed at the ground floor of the Law Court Complex arrived to resuscitate her.

Madam Aryitey-smith was subsequently taken away in a wheelchair to the clinic in the court premises for further treatment.
