A former Liverpool cabbie who travelled to Ghana to do voluntary work on an orphanage has died after getting into difficulty while swimming in a river.
Liverpool Echo reported the tragic and untimely death which occurred at around 2:30pm on Tuesday January 9 when 54-year-old Wayne Robinson went for a swim in the Adawso shores of the Affram river.
Mr Robison and three other men went for a swim and it is believed he got into serious difficulty and was unable to swim ashore.
A local media reported confirmed that Mr Robinson body was retrieved from the river by local fisherman.
Mr Robinson would post pictures onto Facebook logging his progress in Ghana including what looked to be the construction of a building which was being restored.
Before travelling to Ghana, Mr Robinson held a dual hackney carriage and private hire licence for many years. He also ran a driving school based in north Liverpool.
An investigation into his death is underway to ascertain the exact cause.
