A seventeen-year-old school boy of Kuisebmond Secondary School drowned during a Learner Representative Council camp at Nonidas on Friday. The death of the hard working and exemplary boy, Jackson Ipinge, sent shock-waves through Walvis Bay’s schooling community and parents are horrified at just the thought of losing a child in this way.

E-med Rescue reportedly attended the scene where they found Ipinge’s lifeless body after a swimming outing went tragically wrong. The Namibian Police opened an inquest docket and the circumstances around Ipinge’s death are now under investigation.
In another incident, a near drowning occurred at the Dolphin Park Resort over the weekend. The person is said to have been assisted by bystanders until emergency services arrived. The person has been hospitalised in a stable condition.
