The body of Pastor Eurell Hodge has been found, authorities confirmed this morning.

It is believed, the 73-year-old Carlilse Estate resident died when he tried to swim to safety.

He was on a fishing trip with four other men when their small boat ran into difficulty. It later capsized.

Hodge reportedly decided to swim to shore while his fellow fishermen held on to the boat and was rescued the later on Thursday morning.

  1. If you get stuck in the ocean, try to grab onto something that is floating, or float yourself (it’s easy to float in salt water). Trying to swim ashore is usually a bad choice and ends in death. Sorry to his family, prayers to all.

  2. The recount given by 2 others on the boat does mot support this story about the deceased swimming to shore. T Listen to the video on ABS. My condolences to the family. May God guide you through this difficult time..
