Cameroon: Two brothers drown in Garoua

Two boys from the same family drowned in River Benue in Garoua over the weekend. Both boys reportedly took advantage of their mother's absence to go swimming with friends. Their mother had travelled to Ngaoundere for her daughter's thesis defence.
The two boys, 12 & 14, were in the company of two others.

According to the CRTV, one of the boys had attempted to go further into the river in spite of strong warnings from the other boy who had brought them there. As he moved further, the current became too strong and carried him away. Upon seeing the danger, his brother tried to hold him but it was too late as the water swept both of them away.
Their corpses have been fished out and are responding to an autopsy .
