Canacona: A staffer of GVK EMRI (Emergency Management and Research Institute) ambulance service drowned off the Colomb coast after four staff members of the ambulance service were hit by a huge wave while they were busy taking selfies on the rocky area at the Colomb beach in Canacona, on Tuesday.

Canacona police informed that the fatality occurred at around 6 pm on Tuesday evening when Dr Vutukuri Ramakrishna (25) and three staff members of the ambulance service had climbed the rocks in the sea to click selfies and photos. As per information, the four emergency service staffers were hit by a wave, which pulled two of the female staffers in the water, while the other two managed to scramble to the coast.

The locals managed to rescue a staffer while Dr Vutukuri succumbed on the way to Canacona health centre.
