The search for the body of the Swazi student who was swept out to sea by a fierce current on Campus Bay beach last week will resume on Monday.
Sibongiseni Mazibukothe aged 18, was pulled into sea while 53 classmates and eight teachers of Endzikgeni Nazarene High School were enjoying the sunset on Thursday evening. The group was on an educational outing on Cape Town and going to the beach was the last stop.
According to Independent Online the teenagers were taking a group photo in the water when Sibongiseni fell over and was immediately swept away by a strong current.
Rescue workers, Police divers and NSRI members joined forces to look for the body. The search ended at 10pm on Thursday evening and continued until Sunday.
NSRI Spokesperson Craig Lambinon says the search will proceed until the body’s found.
