At least three pedestrians are nursing serious injuries they sustained after a perimeter wall collapsed on them during a stampede at the Likoni ferry crossing on Friday night.
The incident occurred after ferry users tried to force their way onto a waiting ferry, following a pile up that had been occasioned by the malfunction of a ferry.
Victims were admitted at the Coast General hospital where they are recuperating from injuries on their hands and legs.
Likoni OCPD Willy Simba confirmed that a large crowd of people were forcing their way into the ferry after a long wait.
“We heard there were only two ferries operating yesterday during peak hours, pedestrians were inpatient and they forced their way causing the collapse of the wall”
Over-crowding of pedestrians has been a common problem and occurrence at the ferries waiting bays particularly during peak hours.
