Body of drowned man found

Lucas Tlhabano (35) and another employee were working on a barge attending to yachts at moorings following heavy storms last weekend.

Around 16:30 the two men were due to return to shore but, while waiting for a service boat to collect them, Tlhabano attempted to swim to shore and disappeared under water.
“At 16:45 the NSRI Hartbeespoort Dam duty crew were activated following reports from the Transvaal Yacht Club of a drowning in progress. The NSRI Hartbeespoort Dam duty crew launched the sea rescue craft and a search with police divers commenced,” said NSRI spokesperson, Michael Saunders.

The police have opened an inquest docket.
