He was enjoying himself with the lady and forgot he was in a pool.
Diminutive Ghanaian actor Yaw Dabo nearly drowned in a swimming pool on Tuesday, according to reports.
The actor was acting on the set for an upcoming movie, Kakai Soldier, with other casts such as Kyeiwaa and Vivian Okyere among others at the Njul Guest House in Mankrong Nkwanta in the Agona East Constituency when the incident took place.
It is really not clear what exactly happened but a source from the set told NEWS-ONE on Tuesday afternoon that some crew members went to his rescue.
According to the source, he didn’t know how to swim and was made to shoot in the pool until he started gasping for breath.
Dabo is one of Ghana’s smallish actors who are doing very well for themselves.
He is popularly known for his performance in the movie, 'Me Gye Wo Girl', by Media5 Promotions.
It would have been a big blow to the local Twi movie industry had anything happen to him.
