A 22 year-old man drowned in Vaal River
ER24 Spokesperson Vanessa Jackson said when they arrived at the scene, they found around 200 people that appeared to have been having a party at the river side. According to witness reports, the 22 year old young man had gone into the water and he had not been able to climb out again.
“It remains to be investigated as to why he could not get out of the river or as to how long he had been submerged before he was noticed to have been missing and in the river,” Jackson Added.
The Police rescue divers were called to the scene and they removed the lifeless body of the young man from the river.
Paramedics assessed him for any signs of life but sadly there was no more that could be done to revive him and he was declared dead.
