The body of the 10 year old child who went missing while swimming in the Burelevu River last Friday afternoon has been recovered.

The victim was discovered yesterday afternoon floating in the Burelevu River by one 76 year old man of the same village who was fishing yesterday afternoon.

His body was conveyed to the Rakiraki Hospital Mortuary where it awaits a post mortem examination to be conducted to ascertain the cause of death.

The drowning toll currently stands at 5 compared to 1 for the same period last year.

With only a few days remaining before the start of a new school year, we request parents and guardians to keep their children safe so they are able to join their peers when the new term commences.

We would like to see that no other child becomes a victim of a tragic accident and this can only be achieved if we continue to keep a close eye on their whereabouts and activities at all times.
