A 17-year-old boy of Omkar Road, Narere is Fiji’s latest drowning victim after he was swept away by strong currents while swimming in the Wainibuku River around midday today.

His body was only retrieved a while ago by PSRU divers and Nakasi Police officers.

Fiji Police spokeswoman Ana Naisoro said the body of the deceased is now at the CWM Hospital awaiting post mortem.

The boy’s death brings to 53 the drowning death toll.
