In 2018 so far, there have been 33 reported cases of fatal drowning in an attempt to cross a river, most of which are males who live in KZN and the Eastern Cape.14 of these tragic deaths have been children between 6-18 years old.Many South Africans live in areas which require them to cross a river on their way to school or work. After heavy rains, rivers can flow much stronger than usual, please be aware of this, and do not cross a river when it is flowing faster than usual.This visual from February tells the story.
