Pakistan boat tragedy: 10 youngsters killed and 7 injured
Ten youngsters have been killed and 7 have been injured when a ship capsized on a lake in northern Pakistan Sunday, police mentioned.
The boat was carrying 25 to 30 college students when it capsized on the Tanda Dam Kohat, a lake in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province. Rescue operations proceed, police mentioned.
Despite mass drownings occurring ceaselessly within the nation, as a result of overloaded, worn-out vessels overturning in its waters, many individuals in Pakistan can not swim.
Women are notably weak in these conditions since they sometimes put on full-coverage clothes, which weighs them down within the water, and a conservative tradition discourages them from studying to swim.
The tragedy occurred on the identical day a bus crash in southern Pakistan killed 39 individuals.
