The body of a fourth teenager, who drowned at a Cape Town beach over the weekend, has been recovered.
On Wednesday morning, during ongoing search-and-recovery efforts, the body of 18-year-old Uwamungu John Damour was located and recovered from the sea at Rocklands Beach, National Sea Rescue Institute (NSRI) spokesperson Craig Lambinon said in a statement.
The body had been spotted in the surf on Tuesday morning. The teen's father, Felicien Nzisabira, told reporters on Tuesday that he couldn't leave until his son's body was found.
