Man plunges to death in Berbice river


A Sister’s Village family is now mourning the demise of 25-year old Elroy Lewis who allegedly plunged into the Berbice River on Tuesday during an outing with his friends.

Lewis, a tradesman, left home early Tuesday morning to join his friends on the outing which turned tragic around 3:30pm in the afternoon when he suddenly leaped from the boat in which they were travelling into the river.

While the police are questioning his friends about the circumstances surrounding the incident, INews was informed that ranks attached to the Guyana Defense Force are part of the search team for the body.

The police have not ruled out foul play as yet as there are conflicting reports about what really took place during the outing and the true circumstances which led to the young man’s demise.
