The 33-year-old mother whose two daughters and husband tragically drowned in strong currents in the Kirinda Sea off Yala last week has also succumbed to her injuries while undergoing treatment last night, police said.

They said she was undergoing treatment at a private hospital in Colombo.

The family of four who were residents of Nuwara Eliya were dragged by strong currents in the Kirinda Sea off Yala on June 23.

The man (38), his wife and the two daughters – aged four and seven- were rescued from the currents and were rushed to the Kirinda and Debarawewa hospitals, however, the man and two daughters were pronounced dead on admission last Sunday. (Ranjith Rajapaksa)

    Very sad. What a tragic story of a young family that simply went out to see the sea! Time schools teaches young people dangers associated with water, fire, heights and falls, electricity etc as well as with smart phones and selfie taking.

    If they had to go it is better they did together. Otherwise the survivors would have had a woeful life. May they be in peace.

    Life is short. Life is precious. May all four of you attain Nibbana soon.
