A 20-year-old man is dead following a family outing on Sunday to the Three Pools pond in Blanchisseusse.

The deceased has been identified as Devante Lalla, of Chin Chin Road, Cunupia.

He was said to have been at a family outing in the area when he encountered difficulties in the water around 3:00 pm that day.

He reportedly went under the surface for a short time but was then quickly brought to shore.

However, sadly, he did not respond to any attempts made to resuscitate him.

Officers of the Blanchisseuse Police Station were notified and went to the scene.
