The Royal Oman Police continued their search on Tuesday for three missing members of a family of eight who were swept into the sea by strong currents.
Eight members of an Asian expat family fell into the sea on Sunday, after they crossed the fence at Mughsail Beach in the Dhofar governorate, said Oman’s Civil Defence and Ambulance Authority (CDAA).
Three of those who fell were rescued shortly after the incident.
