Eastern Cape police say two girls drowned while trying to cross a river in Lusikisiki.
A third girl remains missing after yesterday’s tragedy. The girls were crossing the Xurana River when they were swept away.
In the Southern Cape, authorities have recovered the body of the 47-year-old Riversdale farm worker who was swept away by flood waters earlier this week.
Louw Korkee, his boss and a fellow worker became trapped on an island in the Wegwyser River two days ago.
The other two were airlifted while they tried to swim to safety.
