ISLAMABAD: At least four people were killed and 17 others disappeared on Wednesday after three ships sank in the Raghagan Dam, local media reported.
A ship carrying 18 people on board sank in the Bajaur district of northwestern Pakistan’s Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province while venturing into deep water on a recreational trip, Xinhua reported.
To rescue them, two boats rushed to save the drowning tourists, but the rescue boats with seven people also sank in the dam.
Another group of rescuers began the operation and rescued four people and removed four bodies from the water tank.
The bodies and four other rescued people were taken to a hospital, Xinhua reported.
The rescue team told the media that they were looking for the missing people, adding that there was almost no chance that they would survive.
Reports citing local police said the first boat sank due to overloading and the rescue boats faced the accident because the personnel were inexperienced and were unable to control the boats.
