12 drown at Karachi’s Hawke’s Bay beach


KARACHI: At least 12 people, including women and children, have drowned at a beach near the port city of Karachi after being swept away by strong waves in the Arabian sea.
Police official Ijaz Khokhar says initially two people drowned Saturday after enjoying a picnic at the beach and the others died trying to rescue them.
He said rescuers have transported the bodies of the 12 “ill-fated picnickers” to a Karachi hospital.
Such incidents have occurred before at Karachi’s beaches where people often disregard warnings from authorities.
