    What are we hearing these days, all tragedies!!!! Father should know the sea is rough and avoided this but alas!!! This is the life belong to them, may their near and dear once be consoled by the God!!! So touched and sad by the 6 year old girls story and now again, pathetic. Sign board should appear in the coastal sea beaches...

    How foolish this father is.
    During this rainy season throughout the whole island , can anyone have a bath in the rough sea?
    Small ones became victims.
