Penal dad drowns in pond

A 49-year-old father of one from South Trinidad is believed to have slipped and drowned in a pond late on Friday.

Kamal Maharaj left his Gopie Trace, Penal home around 11 pm after having a few drinks, but never returned.

Relatives mounted a search Saturday morning and found Maharaj’s lifeless body in a pond some distance away from the house.

His body was then pulled out of the pond, which is said to have overflown its banks during heavy rains over the course of the last two days.
