Relatives Monday morning recovered the body of 17-year-old Surendra Singh at the Windsor Forest, West Coast Demerara foreshore. Singh reportedly drowned on Sunday while on a fishing trip with two friends. His relatives searched for this body throughout the night and continued the search Monday morning.
The teen’s body was found buried in the mud after the tide went out; it was in the vicinity where he reportedly drowned.
