Bodies of two Asians found floating in sea

Nissar Hoath / 15 March 2012

ABU DHABI - The Abu Dhabi Police are investigating the deaths of two Asians whose bodies were found floating near Mussafah’s industrial harbour on Monday morning.

According to the police, the bodies were spotted floating close to the breakwater barrier by local residents.

The bodies were fished out and shifted to the police forensic centre for autopsy, Major Jumma Al Ka’abi of the Criminal Investigation Department, told Khaleej Times.

The exact identities of the deceased are being ascertained. They are seemed to be in the early thirties. “The initial investigation does not show any criminal act. However, we are trying to identify them and find out the circumstances that caused their deaths. Our officers found the two bodies on the rocky shores,” he said.

It would be difficult to conclude how they died at this stage, as the weather conditions, particularly at sea, were not favourable for people to venture out, he added.

The officer advised residents, particularly fishermen and swimmers, to avoid the sea due to the rough weather. “The seas are rough. Try avoid swimming and sailing and follow the official marine safety rules and regulations. The majority of such accidents happen due to poor knowledge about the weather conditions at sea,” he added.

Earlier this week, the Abu Dhabi Police Air Wing rescued three from a fishing boat. The boat developed a technical sang about 15 nautical miles off Al Taweelah. The rescue team, braving strong cold winds, rescued them.

The National Centre for Meteorology and Seismology (NCMS) has been advising residents across the country for several weeks to avoid swimming at beaches and going to the sea due to the rough weather conditions and poor visibility.
