Police search and rescue divers rushed to the scene in the Mehlomnyama area and, guided by a specialised search dog, located the 16-year-old’s body on the riverbed.

It is understood that the teen had been fishing when he lost his footing and slipped into the water.

In another incident at the weekend, a 39-year-old man drowned while swimming in a dam in Ndlangubo, near Mtunzini, 150km north of Durban.

The man was spotted flailing in the water, before disappearing beneath the surface.

Police are investigating both incidents.
