Multiple tourists saved from drowning (Calangute-Candolim)

Lifeguards in Goa are keeping busy and are on high alert, especially at the Calangute-Candolim beach stretch. Over the New Year, the number of tourists increased. Fortunately, 24 of them who were in danger were saved by the lifeguards.

When the new year just began, 3 male youth from Karnataka started getting pulled deeper and deeper into the sea at Calangute. Lifeguards quickly saved them using rescue boats. Over the weekend, 4 men from Bihar and another 4 men from Uttar Pradesh were rescued before they drowned.

Extra lifeguards had to be stationed to deal with the large beach crowds.
