Chavakkad (Thrissur): Two students who tried to take bath at Blangad beach went missing in the sea on Monday morning. Four boys from Chavakkad and Blangad area went to the beach together and they were washed away.
Two of the boys were later rescued and hospitalised while two others are still missing. Search operation is continuing. As the boys are from nearby places, people did not notice them going to the sea side.
Search started only after realising that the students were missing. There was strict restrictions imposed in Chavakkad area following the COVID-19 outbreak. The restrictions were relaxed only a few days ago.
