Foreign tourist drowns North of Umhlanga

KwaZulu-Natal: At 09H19 Sunday morning Netcare 911 responded to reports of a drowning at a non swimming beach North of Bronze Beach, Umhlanga Rocks.

Reports from the scene indicate that a male believed to be in his forties got into difficulty while swimming near the shore break.

According to witnesses on the scene the man had been swimming with his wife when he went under.

The man has been presumed drowned due to the length he has already been submerged.
