Fishing tragedy in Córdoba

A thirteen year old youth has drowned while fishing in a small, private pond on a farm in Espiel, Córdoba.

The youth apparently jumped into the water to try and catch a fish despite being unable to swim and quickly sank, the water being around four metres deep.

His friend alerted the Emergency Services but they could do nothing but retrieve the body from the water. The deceased, aged thirteen, was born in Nigeria but was living with his mother in Espiel.

A police investigation into the incident is under way.
