While information remains sketchy, Guyana Times understands that the young man and his family were outside of the Resort when a ball accidentally went into the Resort’s compound.
In an attempt to get the ball, the man reportedly crawled under the fence. After some time has passed and Ramdas did not return, the family frantically started to search for him.
Up to late Sunday evening, his body was not yet discovered. An investigation has been launched into the incident.
Less than a year ago, the body of 18-year-old Ronaldo Gomes of Lot 8 Norton Street, Wortmanville, Georgetown, was recovered from the Splashmin’s Resort after he was believed to have drowned.
The teenager went to the creek with his cousin, a bus owner who was hired to transport some persons to the private resort. As the group was getting ready to leave, persons realised Gomes was missing.
Upon searching and making enquiries, they were informed that while swimming, the water became rough and the teen ventured out to the deep end. The cousin was reportedly told that the teen went beyond the barricade ropes and was allegedly hit by a jet-ski.
A search was then conducted, and his body was found floating with injuries to his face.
