Man dies in rowing boat accident


A 35-YEAR-old man died and another is presumed dead after a rowing boat capsized on the Hamburg River in Port Alfred, Eastern Cape police said today.


Three men were trying to cross the river in a rowing boat when they got into difficulty on Saturday night, said Captain Mali Govender.


“One of them managed to swim to safety and the two others went under water.” On Sunday, rescuers recovered one body and were still searching for the other. – Sapa
