Cops continue search for girl swept away by river
The child, along with her five-year-old brother and their father, were all swept away by a heavy stream.
CAPE TOWN - Police are continuing to search for a nine-year-old girl who is presumed to have drowned while trying to cross a flooded river in Kaalstroom near De Rust.
The child along with her five-year-old brother and their father were all swept away by a heavy stream last Friday.
Her brother drowned while their father survived.
Heavy downpours are believed to have caused the river to overflow.
The police's Malcolm Poje said, "Unfortunately, there's been no trace of her yet but we are trying to keep up the search. So far we have the diving unit as well as the EMS diving units from the surrounding area from Oudtshoorn."
