GEORGE NEWS AND VIDEO - The search for the body of a 2-year old girl who is believed to have drowned at Voëlklip yesterday, 21 January, continues.
Two drones, police divers, NSRI, Metro Rescue and members of local disaster management are all on scene continuing the search on land and sea.
This comes after a vehicle with a mother (34), her son (8) and daughter left the road and went over the edge near the Voëlklip viewpoint in Herold's Bay.
The boy was allegedly flung from the car as it rolled before it went over the edge of the cliff. He sustained mild injuries and has been transported to hospital with ER24 paramedics. He has since been discharged.
The father, who was on the scene with other family members earlier today, declined to comment at this stage and asked that the family's wishes be respected.
He also expressed his wishes that no identities be revealed at this stage and that prayers for his daughter and family are welcome.
The mother's body was recovered from the water yesterday afternoon.
This is the fourth vehicle that has gone over the cliff near Voëlklip since Heidi Scheepers and her two children went over the edge in October 2019.
Southern Cape police spokesperson, Capt Malcolm Pojie, gives a brief overview of the last two days. Watch the video below:
