Father dronws in Glentana

A father and son kayaking experience in Glentana ended in tragedy when a man from Rheebok drowned on 5 January 2018.

The deceased and his son were paddling in the ocean while the man's wife and other children were sunbathing on the beach. The kayak was capsized by a wave and they were unable to get back onto the vessel.

According to the police, the son was able to swim to the shore while his father appeared to have difficulty reaching the shore. Life guards raced to assist the man and brought him to dry land where three medical doctors who happened to be on the beach tried to resuscitate him.

All efforts to resuscitate the man were exhausted and he died on the scene.

Great Brak River police opened an inquest docket into the incident. The identity of the man is not known at this stage.

Our condolences to the family and friends of the deceased.
