RETRIEVED AT LAST

The body parts of ody parts of a local tourist, Roy Dikinya, who slipped and fell into a gorge at the Victoria Falls has been retrieved.

The process, which was temporarily stopped due to rains, started at around 10am and finished around 4pm. Dikinya slipped at a Danger Point while taking selfies with his smart phone. The smart phone was also recovered from the gorge but with a damaged LCD.

Three daring kayakers led by filmmaker Tom Vary managed to paddle to the exact spot where Dikinya’s body parts were initially discovered. Other rescue team members had mounted zip lines as they worked as a unit. But they found that the remains had been swept away by the water and only managed to recover a smart phone.

The body parts were later discovered downstream floating around the eddy just after rapid four. The rescue team had to lower an inflatable boat down the gorge which was used to ferry Dikinya’s remains from the eddy to the point where it was pulled up the gorge using the gorge swing ropes.
