Oman: Father and two children drown on Al Suwadi beach

A seven-year-old child’s body was found on Al Suwadi beach in Oman on Thursday after he, his father, and a sibling drowned.

Authorities announced on Thursday that the mother and sister of the child were rescued.

A second incident involving an Omani drowning in a wadi in South Al Batinah province also was reported on Thursday. Locals found his body and transported it to a hospital.

The country’s Civil Defence and Ambulance Authority has issued a warning to the general public telling them not to swim in undesignated places.

Oman has already recorded several similar cases recently owing to the turbulent weather over the past several weeks.

Authorities warned the public to heed security precautions when traveling to areas hit by torrential rain and strong winds. BKM/ Expat Media
