Durban - A man drowned at Albert Falls Dam in KwaZulu-Natal on Sunday afternoon, paramedics have said.
"It is understood that a group of friends were swimming at the falls when the man jumped from a height into the water and failed to surface again," ER24 spokesperson Werner Vermaak said.
Paramedics and SA Police Service Search and Rescue were called to the scene.
People at the dam could not find the man's body in the water.
After a two hour search by police he was found, Vermaak said.
However, paramedics could do nothing for him and he was declared dead.
