The friend recalled that that the now dead man left him around 12:00hrs after indicating that he wanted to go and take a swim. Prakash pointed out that he his friend would normally imbibe in alcohol, but yesterday he was sober when he left to go to the seawall.
An hour later a young boy saw Ramdeen encountering difficulties in the water, about 200 meters out, and raised an alarm.
