Johannesburg - A college student drowned at Clifton beach on Wednesday, the Cape Town disaster risk management centre said.

Spokesperson Wilfred Solomons-Johannes said the 24-year-old man was part of a group of students from Rosebank Progress College on an excursion. The events leading up to the drowning were not clear.

Solomons-Johannes warned beach-goers to be cautious, as rough seas and strong currents made for dangerous swimming conditions.
