Man chases ball into the sea, and drowns


A 26 year old La Brea man who went after a ball while swimming in a Point Fortin beach on Sunday is suspected to have drowned.

David Mayers, of Majouba Village, disappeared beneath the waves at Clifton Hill beach at around 3.15 p.m.

Police were told that Mayers was following a ball which had drifted into a rocky area.

Moments later he could not be found by his friends and relatives.

Coast guard officers responded and searches have proved futile.

Insp Ramphal and others of the Point Fortin CID also responded and searches continued this morning.
