Life is unpredictable. Though most of us live as if we will live for the next 2-3 decades, nobody knows when their clock would just stop ticking. It always gets us by surprise at the most unexpected moments and conditions.

This is another tragic story we bring to you of four members of the same family…

Tragedy in Pasikudah

Two brothers aged twenty one and eighteen were reported missing on the evening of September 18,  after they went to bathe at the Pasikudah beach.

Shortly after the tragic news, the bodies of their parents were discovered hanging in front of their home in an apparent suicide….

“Both my brothers passed away, I have no parents either. Prior to this I lost another sibling of mine. Now, I have to take care of my children and live all by my self” said the sister of the deceased youth.

According to a local, the Kalkudah beach is dangerous and not safe for sea baths . He pointed out that people do not use the area for bathing but when they do, it ends it tragedy…

The body of the twenty-one-year-old elder brother was recovered by divers on the morning of September 19, just 500 metres off the coast of Kalkudah. The body of the younger sibling was found later in the afternoon.

The only surviving member of this family, a woman, was hospitalised shortly after the incident due to shock and mental stress.
