    Outside people do not know about the danger area just few steps back on the beach where there is no sand and any one can washed away from river to sea with the water flow. Same thing happen to my younger brother on 27 January who was Manager in Canara bank posted in Bengaluru native of Delhi with having spouse and 2 kids lived in a joint family. He was not aware of that danger area and washed away in sea. Found him after 2 days about 30 km far in Sea. Unfortunately there was a festival on 27 and 28, so every local people and fisherman were on leave and celebrating in nearby temple. So there was no one at the time when he was drowning. His 2 friends were also helpless as no one know swimming. So, People should listen to locals rather than fighting with them if they ask people not to go in water at that place.
