Two expatriates, includng a Sri Lankan, drowned off the Oman coast while enjoying Eid holidays.
Valsakumar, 50, Indian, and Herathu, 50, Sri Lankan, both employed at a defence camp in Thumrait, a small town in southern Oman, were part of a 15-member group on a holiday trip to Taqa beach in Salalah, the capital of Oman’s Dhofar province.
Six people got caught in the powerful waves and two drowned while the other four were rescued, the Times of Oman said.
“The retreating waves were very powerful. This might be the reason for the accident,” one of the victims’ friends said. (Gulf News)
