73 year old Neville Boland, a grave digger of Cir­cle Dri­ve Em­bac­cadere, visited Black Stone beach on Sunday 27th October (Divali holiday) just before going to church; however he never made it out of the sea alive.

According to po­lice reports, Boland got into the water just after 3 pm and got in­to some dif­fi­cul­ties.

Half an hour lat­er, his body was seen float­ing in the Gulf of Paria.

It was brought out to shore by res­i­dents.

Sgt Rahim, In­sp’s Fi­ga­roo and Har­riper­sad as well as PC Kham­raj vis­it­ed the scene.

San Fer­nan­do po­lice are con­tin­u­ing in­ves­ti­ga­tions.
