The body of 35-year-old George Bowman has been recovered along with the remains of another man who went missing following a boat mishap on Monday.
This publication was told that police ranks and other public-spirited citizens recovered the bodies some time yesterday in the Puruni area.
According to reports, 16 passengers, including one woman, had travelled from the Puruni backdam to the ‘landing’ on Sunday last, for a Father’s Day celebration.
They were heading back to the backdam on Monday afternoon when the vessel capsized. A man claiming to be an eyewitness said that the vessel overturned after it became snagged on a rope that was tied to a barge.
Bowman’s mother Helena Smith, said that she was informed that her son, who knew to swim, was wearing long-boots when the boat capsized. Last evening Smith said she received a telephone call from the interior saying that her son’s body was recovered.
Ever since the incident the woman said she was hopeful that her son would be found alive. Bowman has four children aged 18, 10, three and ten months.
