They said the victims were residents of Nuwara Eliya who were touring the area.   


The man (38), his wife and the two daughters – aged four and seven- were rescued from the current and were rushed to the Kirinda and Debarawewa Hospitals, however, the man and one daughter were pronounced dead on admission.
