Karachi – Merely three fishermen drowned as boat capsized near Karachi’s bay of Manora on Saturday.
Nine fishermen were rescued, said the boat’s owner to a private news agency.
According to the details, a total of 12 fishermen were onboard a boat that overturned. The rescue officials recovered three dead bodies and saved five others while a search for missing fishermen was underway.
The incident happened days after four people lost life while coping up with heat at Karachi’s Hawkes Bay.
Regrettably, Pakistan’s metropolis witnesses incidents of drowning in the summer season, when picnickers swarm the beaches to beat the soaring temperatures in the city. Many of the Karachiites shun the warnings from the civil administration to stay away from deep waters.
In 2015, three people were swept away by a strong tide in the Gadani beach while in 2014, 23 people drowned in Clifton beach despite a ban on swimming in the sea. Both the incidents too took place on one of the Eid days.
