Body of swimmer who went missing outside of Splashmins found

Dinesh Ramdas

The body of Dinesh Ramdas, the man who went missing while swimming outside of Splash-mins Fun Park on Sunday was recovered by his family on Monday.

Stabroek News gathered that after the search party’s efforts were futile in recovering the body on Sunday afternoon, they returned to the creek on Monday and were able to retrieve the body.

Stabroek News reported on Monday that the twenty-five-year-old, of Lot ‘A’ Coghlan Dam, Pouderoyen West Bank Demerara was swimming with friends at an unregulated section of the Splashmins creek when tragedy struck.

Splashmins Proprietor Lennox John on Sunday night told Stabroek News that Ramdas was a patron of the outer section of the creek. While swimming, a ball Ramdas and others were using went over the fun park fence resulting in Ramdas swimming under the fence to retrieve the ball.

It was at that point, John said, he went missing. According to John, the area where the fence separates his entity from the outer section is dangerous due its depth and the fact that a channel is located there.
