Girl, 8, missing after falling into canal

The search for an eight-year-old girl who fell into a canal, as well as for the man who tried to rescue her, in Belgravia Estate in Cape Town on Thursday, has been called off due to poor weather conditions.

According to the Western Cape police spokesperson, Captain FC Van Wyk, the girl fell into a canal in the Vygieskraal informal settlement.

A man had tried to help her but also fell in.

 

Cape Town Fire and Rescue Service said they were alerted to the incident, as well as fire crews from Ottery and Epping.

Divers from the Roeland Street base were also dispatched to the scene.

Upon arrival, they were told that a man had jumped into the canal after the girl.

“Members of the Ottery fire crew positioned themselves in Klipfontein Road across from the Mary Harding School, while Epping’s crew was at Koedoe and Hickory streets, and at Loerie and Cornflower street, and divers at the sewerage plant.
