Twin girls drown in hole

2011-02-04 20:43

Johannesburg -Twin eight-year-old girls drowned at the Mullerstuin small holding just outside Vanderbijl Park, Gauteng police said on Friday.

The girls apparently decided to go swimming on Thursday afternoon in holes dug for sand to fill potholes. Due to heavy rain the holes had filled with water, spokesperson Kinnie Steyn said.

A man who was attending to sheep and cattle nearby saw what was happening but was unable to swim so he ran to call the owner of the small holding.

The owner and his wife managed to pull the girls out of the hole and administered CPR, but they got there too late, she said.

Stein said the father of Lebo and Lebogang Mthinkulu told police that the girls had been very close and did everything together.

    Dude, that's cold. Two little girls are dead and that's all you have to say? Not cool. Not cool at all.

    News24 really should find a way to filter out all these racist comments quicker. Some amount to pure hate speech. Like this idiot edis_pilF. So what if the girls couldn't swim??. I suppose no non-black person over the age of 8 has ever drowned then, eh? Two young girls have lost their lives and all you can do is make racist comments! This is a terrible tragedy, my condolences to the family.

    Two little girls lost their lives tragically, and some moron still feels the need to punt racism? RIP little angels.
