Heroic Anish tried to save his father but he is drowned too
The Father - Son gone to Rachol, Zuari River on their bike from their Residence Borda, Margao (a distance of about 14kms) to perform some religious rites 'ashes' of their late father /grand father who died a year ago.
At the dock (jetty), while father (48) performing rites stanging on the steps below knee deep water, he suddenly fell into the river (slipped), seeing his father is struggling for life, the son raise alarm but no one out there to help, he then jumped hoping to save his father but he was drowned too.
Heroic Son Aneesh (17). RIP
He could not save his father, so what?At least he was brave enough to try to save him.
Not all such risky attempts end up in success
Bravery award to the son highly recommended (posthumously)
The incident took place on Thursday the 22nd Dec. 2011 at 2.30pm.Police, Coastal Police, Navy divers with under water cameras tried to look for them the whole day and the next day but no luck. Bodies found floating on the third day Saturday the 24th Dec, one at the site / dock and the other little further towards Raia-Shiroda Ferry.
Final rites took place on Sunday the X’Mas day.
Father was working at Account Dept. KTC, Margao and the son was a student of Class XII.
One can well imagine what the wife / mother is going through, I have personally watched the situation at her residence Borda (1st floor flat) today 29th Dec. 2011. Little daughter/Sister Durga also seen.
God, give them strength to bear all this.
