Four cousins rescued after days of drifting at sea
Four young men have been rescued days after they were left drifting in the Mahaicony River after their engine failed.
A relative of the young men, Thakur Dyal of Novar Mahaicony, East Coast Demerara, told the News Room Sunday that the four cousins Adesh Latchman, Anand Sookram, Shado Ramkisoon and Manmohan Indra left to go fishing on Tuesday, June 25 and were slated to return the next day.
But the boys called relatives and informed them of the broken engine.
“We went Thursday and Friday and search for them but we ain’t find them,” Dyal told the News Room.
The first of the four to be rescued was Ramkisson on Saturday night.
“Is a small fishing boat [that was coming in] and he only could have rescued one of them so he [gave] them lil food and water to last them until today [Sunday],” Dyal said.
Two fishing boats went in search of the three others early Sunday morning and by 9am, they were found and making their way back to land.
The cousins all reside at Dundee Mahaicony.
