Two children in a rowboat who were swept away by strong currents have been rescued by MNDF Northern Command.
The two children were travelling from Haa Alif Muraidhoo to Haa Alif Baa Rah, when their boat was pulled off course by strong currents. Both children tried to desperately row towards Baa Rah but failed.
When MNDF got news of the incident, they dispatched Coast Guard harbour craft 103 to the scene. The boys were rescued near Haa Alif Alidhoo around 6,14pm.
Both children are reported to be fine.
