COLOMBO (News 1st) – The surviving mother of the tragic Kirinda drowning has drawn her last breath. She died while she was treated at a private hospital in Colombo.

Her husband and two daughters died on June 22nd after the strong currents in Kirinda dragged them away into the sea. The funerals of the husband and two girls were held on June 25th.

The mother was rescued by a soldier who was stationed in the area and she was initially admitted to the Tissamaharama hospital and subsequently transferred to the Ampara Base Hospital ICU. Finally, she was transferred to a private hospital in Colombo following the intervention of her relatives.

She passed away last night as the 07-day remembrance of her deceased husband and daughters was taking place at their residence in Hatton.
