Two Killed, Two Missing In Rough Sea In Mumbai

NEW DELHI, Jun 13 (NNN-PTI) – Two boys were killed and two others went missing, after venturing into the rough sea in Mumbai, the capital city of India’s south-western state of Maharashtra, officials said today.

The boys, aged between 12 and 16, went into the sea last night, ignoring calls from a lifeguard at the city’s Juhu beach. “The boys went missing nearly half a kilometre from the shore,” a local government official said.

“Rescuers have found two boys, but they were declared dead by the Cooper hospital doctors. Two others feared missing are presumed to have drowned,” said the official. Immediately after the incident, local fishermen and rescuers from the fire brigade launched operations to trace the boys.

The incident came as Cyclone Biparjoy was intensifying into the Arabian Sea, triggering gusty winds lashing the Mumbai coast. Local officials warned people and fishermen against venturing into the sea earlier.
