5 members of a family drown in Ratnagiri beach
Five members of a family drowned in Rathnagiri beach in Maharashtra. They had visited the beach to enjoy a swim as a part of summer vacation. While two of the family members stayed on the beach, the remaining stepped into the sea and were washed away by the ferocious waves. They did not pay heed to the locals, who earlier warned them against the lurking danger in the sea at Ratnagiri and to avoid going inside the waters. As a result five were drowned.
