30-year-old man drowns off Mumbai`s Juhu beach
A 30-year-old man – identified as Ravinder Chandrakant Pangare – died after drowning at Mumbai’s Juhu beach around 6:30 pm on Tuesday.
Although the youth was rescued by Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation lifeguards and rushed to Mumbai’s Cooper Hospital, the youth had already died. Doctors termed it as a case of ‘bringing in the dead’.
Earlier in November 2022, two children drowned and three others were rescued by locals in Worli. 8-year-old Karthik Chaudhary and 12-year-old Savita Pal were declared brought dead by doctors after being taken to a nearby hospital.

These frequent drowning incidents have now become a major concern across the country.
