About 05:30 hrs on Thursday, the body of 13-year-old Hasini Mack was found floating in the Upper Demerara River near the western side of Coomacka Beach.
At the time, the teen’s mother, community members, along with ranks from the Mackenzie Police Station, were continuing their search in the Coomacka mines beach area for the body.
Mack disappeared on Tuesday afternoon during an outing at the beach with several others. He was reportedly “pulled” down into the water by heavy currents.
The body was fished out of the river and examined by Detective Constable Wilson. No marks of violence were seen on the most exposed part of the body, which was then escorted to the Linden Hospital Complex.
The body is at G-Jetsco Funeral Home, awaiting a post-mortem examination.
