HARARE – Two boys aged seven and nine drowned after a fishing expedition went wrong on Saturday, police said.
The two, who have not been named, died at the Supersands Retreat Farm near Waterfalls in Harare.
“It is alleged that the two victims, together with another juvenile aged 10, were fishing at a disused pit when one of them slipped into the pit,” police spokesman Assistant Commissioner Paul Nyathi said.
“The second victim drowned while trying to rescue the first victim. Police has since referred the bodies of the victims to Sally Mugabe Hospital for post-mortem.”
