New York City (United States) Authorities named Street 2363 after Ghanaian soldier Pfc. Emmanuel Mensah

New York City (United States) Authorities named Street 2363 after Ghanaian soldier Pfc. Emmanuel Mensah




It was all joy and excitement in the Bronx, New York City (United States) today, as Street 2363 Prospects Avenue was named after the Late Ghanaian soldier Pfc. Emmanuel Mensah.

On December 28, 2017, New York City recorded the deadliest fire in more than 25 years which ripped through the apartment building where Private Mensah lived with his father's friend Nana Yartel, Mr. Yartel’s wife and the couple’s four children.

The private was asleep in his bedroom when one of the children alerted their parents to the smell of smoke. Instead of escaping unharmed to live out his life as a newly minted soldier, Private Mensah, 26, went back inside to rescue his neighbors, ultimately paying with his life.

The Ghanaian was part of the fire which killed 13 persons, including five members of a family rooted in Jamaica, five other persons from Ghana, a woman from Puerto Rico and her infant granddaughters. The ravaging fire was started by a 3-year-old playing with a stove.

Almost two years on, Pfc. Mensah has been duly honored for his heroic act. Our correspondent in the United States, Benedict Baako, who broke the news to us, said the colorful ceremony was attended by the proud family of the deceased, the Ghanaian community in the USA, some family members of the other deceased persons, duty bearers, well-wishers and the media.

The United States Army posthumously awarded Private Mensah the Soldier's Medal, its highest honor for heroism outside of combat, and New York State awarded him its Medal of Valor. Indeed, the world needs a lot more of Private Mensah to make it a better place to live. Rest In Peace Ghanaba; your legacy still lives on!
