Father, son drown

A father and son who joined a group of family friends for a sea bath off the Nayaru Coast in Mullaitivu on December 29 were drowned after getting caught to a high tide.

Earlier, the 16 year old son had got into difficulties due to a high wave and the father had rushed to save him but both were drowned and dragged away by the swirling waters. The 55 year old father's body was later recovered by the Navy and life saving cadres but the son's body had not been traced so far.

The two are said to be close relatives of well known artists Sachischandra Edirisinghe and Sunil Edirisinghe and are residents of Kelaniya.
