Durban – A body of a man was found floating on a lake on a farm situated along the R56 between Ixopo and Umzimkkulu in KwaZulu-Natal, ER24 spokesman Russel Meiring said on Monday.
Meiring said the paramedics and police search and rescue were called to the scene after a passerby saw the body. They recovered the body, which was found a short distance from the wall of the dam.
"Once the body was taken to the shores, the paramedics evaluated the man and found that he had been dead for some time. Nothing could be done for him and he was pronounced dead," Meiring said.
Local authorities are investigating the circumstances surrounding the man's death.
