2 killed, 2 feared drown off Mumbai’s Juhu Beach


Mumbai, July 6: Two people were killed and two others are feared drowned at Juhu beach in Mumbai after a group of five boys entered the sea for a swim on Thursday. 

A group of youngsters on Thursday ventured into the sea for a swim at the iconic Juhu Chowpatty beach, but got trapped under high tide. Lifeguards were able to rescue one boy, who is in a hospital for the treatment.

Search is underway for the remaining two boys.

The Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation has taken help of fire brigade department and the Navy in the rescue operation. A chopper has also been deployed into service to find the missing boys.

Earlier on June 18, a teenager was swept away by sea waves at Marine Drive in south Mumbai while apparently clicking a selfie.

In a separate incident, last month five members of a family were drowned in the sea off Ratnagiri coast in Maharashtra.
