Palghar (Maharashtra), March 3, 2022
In a tragic incident, four teens from Nashik out on a picnic drowned at the Kelwe Beach while trying to rescue a 13-year-old boy who was being swept away by the strong currents of a whirlpool during high tide here on Thursday afternoon, police said.
One 17-year-old boy, who was also sucked in by the swirling waters, but could swim, was pulled ashore with a rope thrown by a local person, said an official.
The victims were part of a group of 40 students, including 11 girls -- all junior college students, accompanied by five teachers, who arrived here in a bus for a day's picnic at the picturesque Kelwe Beach.
