The body of the Navy sailor who went missing following the capsizing of a Navy boat at the Galle Face on Saturday during the victory day parade was found from Bambalapitiya this morning.

Four navy personnel had fallen off a small Sri Lanka Navy vessel which had been involved in an accident during the Victory day Parade but three sailors were rescued yesterday at sea.

    We were under the impression all navy sailors knows to swim. And very ironic that beside a huge number of vessels presence none of them succeeded in saving a life of a sailor!!

    A precious life of a veteran soldier is gone without a bullet being shot at. Looking for any contribution to be paid as compensation from already poor citizens?

    Vaz Sunday, 19 May 2013 07:56 AM

    During the war soldiers died to save the country, now they have to die in the evens organise to boost MR's political popularity. This events cost money of innocent taxpayers too.

    Lankanboy Sunday, 19 May 2013 08:02 AM

    More to die to keep MR in power

    Rohan Sunday, 19 May 2013 07:59 AM

    Navy probably abandoned the search quickly to concentrate on king's celebration. What sort of empty leaders are these goons?

    Trehan Munasinghe Sunday, 19 May 2013 08:17 AM

    Time to "END THIS MADNESS" and get on with our lives..... Does this Govt need to keep reminding the people that they won the Civil War, We all know that....

    Dushy Ranetunge Sunday, 19 May 2013 08:34 AM

    Health & safety is unheard of in the motherland/fatherland. You just step over the dead and carry on....

    manjula Sunday, 19 May 2013 04:10 PM

    you are correct Mohamed, it is not their fault how can they come for rescue of the poor sailor without pleasing MR family.

    Grace Sunday, 19 May 2013 10:50 AM

    Poor sailor sacrificed his life for someone else political future.

    IS IT TOO LATE TO ASK WHETHER LIFE JACKETS ARE NOT WORN AS PART OF THE UNIFORM OF THE NAVY DUE TO VIP CEREMONIES?
