The body of the last remaining teenager out of a group of four who drowned at Rocklands Beach in Sea Point, Cape Town, over the weekend has been recovered.
This morning during an ongoing search and recovery effort, the body of the 18 year old was located and recovered from the sea at Rocklands Beach. National Sea Rescue Institute (NSRI) spokesperson Craig Lambinon released this information in a press statement.
This is the fourth body that has been recovered since Monday.
The father of the deceased,Felicien Nzisabira watched helplessly yesterday as the body of his son, Uwamungu John Damour, appeared on the rocks at around 10:30.
Nzisabira and his friends had wanted to grab ropes and immediately fetch the body, but the sea conditions were rough and they were held back as officials waited to go in safely.
The Burundian family has been in the country since 2006 and is part of refugees who are currently staying at the Central Methodist Church in Green Market Square.
The NSRI had on Sunday received reports of four people in difficulty in the surf at Rocklands Beach.
