Kundapur: A holiday and wedding fun family outing for a Mudipu-based family in Mangaluru turned out to be a nightmare as a 12-year-old from the family as he was swept away into rough sea. The divers recovered his body on Monday morning.

Police have identified the deceased as Junaid, son of Rashid, a rickshaw driver. Rashid, along with his relatives had gone to Shiroor in Udupi for a wedding on Sunday. In the evening, they stopped by the beach at Maravanthe under Gangolli police station limits to enjoy the picturesque view and play in the waters.

However, as Junaid got into the water, giant waves hit the shores and swept him away. His friend and a relative, too, suffered the high tide and were hospitalised. While Junaid died, the other two are safe, the police said.
