Kenneth Gagela, our WaterWise Instructor in Soweto, was devastated to hear that two children drowned while playing close to their homes at Doornkop next to Dobsonville .
Their game involved chasing each other and one of the six boys, who was only seven years old, lost his footing and fell into a water filled ditch. The 11 year old rushed in to try and save his young friend and he too drowned . The other then went for help.
But it was too late. The body of the first child was found at 6pm and the second one @ 6:45 .
This tragic story happens too often and Kenneth will track down the school that the children attended to present our water safety lesson at.
