A youth has been found dead in the lagoon at GDh. Fiyoaree.
The youth, Ibrahim Saeed, found in the lagoon was a crew member of a boat named “Khazaana” from S. Feydhoo.
A source from Fiyoaree Council office said he went missing after going into the water for a bath. When he didn’t surface for a long time, a search ensued and he was found dead in the lagoon near the boat he was working on. The boat was scheduled to leave Fiyoaree later in the day as the weather was stormy, the source said.
The source also said he was found 30 meters below the surface and was already dead when they took him out of the water. He was later confirmed dead at Fiyoaree Health Centre, the source said.
VNews has learned that Ibrahim suffers seizures.
Preparations are being made to transfer the deceased’s body to Addu via sea ambulance.
