    Usually, a girl drown[s] in normal English. Man, if grammar can't even be used properly by the media, how do we expect school kids to get it right??

      fully agree! it slays me when a local newspaper has constant spelling mistakes and poor grammar,on every second story.

    Is this not the same story as the wild coast drowning? Port Edward is the town immediately next to the Wild Coast Sun. And the Wild Coast is on the Eastern Cape side and Port Edward is on the KZN side.

    Media24, please make sure about your facts before you writes an article. Port Edward are situated in KwaZulu Natal and definitely not in the Eastern Cape! Oe-e-e!!!

    By taking a bit more care in using correct grammar and facts, News 24 will not only show respect for their readers, but also to the family of a lost human being. Heng, ek is Afrikaans, maar gebruik 'n "spell check", voor ek Engels of Afrikaans in die openbaar publiseer.
