“Oyen was at ground zero when the aircraft crashed in Elmina. Thank you, Health Ministry ambulance team, for rescuing Oyen,” the clinic said on its Instagram account on Saturday.

Online users flooded the comment section, praying for the cat’s health and speedy recovery.

They also thanked the Health Ministry for being thoughtful in rescuing the cat and sending it to a vet for treatment.

Another user, Affhrhimi, wrote: “Allahu, thank you KKM for caring for Oyen too. Get well soon, Oyen!”
