The body of 19-year-old Esther Weekes was moments ago recovered at the boat landing in front of the Wismar Police Station, Region 10, three days after she allegedly drowned.
The teenager reportedly drowned in the Demerara River in the vicinity of Burnham Drive and Silvertown, Wismar on Sunday.
Reports are that Weekes was in the company of her aunt and an 11-year-old male cousin when the tragedy took place.
The young lady was reportedly playing with her cousin when he slipped into the water and Weekes, in an attempt to save him, extended her hand but she ended up overboard as well.
The young boy was able to make it back to land safely but Weekes was not that lucky.
