Sharjah's rough seas claim another life

Police warn swimmers to stay out of the ocean till seasonal waves die down.

SHARJAH // An Egyptian man drowned in high waters at Sharjah’s Al Khan open beach on Friday, police say.

His body was retrieved in the evening and taken to Kuwait Hospital.

A police spokesman urged beachgoers to refrain from swimming until the weather is declared safe.

Last month, three people drowned and two others were rescued off Ajman Corniche Beach after ignoring high wave warnings. Earlier this year a man and a teenage boy drowned while swimming in rough seas in Sharjah.
