A 16-year-old teenager died due to drowning at Juhu beach in Mumbai during Ganpati visarjan (immersion) on Thursday.


The incident took place at Juhu beach near Andheri West around 4.15 pm. The incident was reported by Mumbai Fire Brigade (MFB).


"One person injured at Juhu Chowpatti was sent to civic-run Cooper Hospital," the BMC statement stated.


The deceased has been identified as Hasan Yusuf Shaikh (16).

"A male person was removed from seawater during Ganpati immersion duty by a lifeguard and was sent to RN Cooper hospital in ambulance for medical treatment," BMC official said.

As per Cooper Hospital's assistant medical officer, Dr Devidas Walke, the injured person was declared brought dead.

Meanwhile, a 20-year-old man went missing after he entered the Netravati river in Maharashtra's Nashik district during the immersion of a Ganesh idol, an official said on Thursday.

"Raj Umesh Wagh waded into the water body at Pachore Vani village in Niphad taluka when an idol of Lord Ganesh was being immersed on Wednesday afternoon.
However, Wagh perhaps could not judge the depth of the water and slipped," the official said.

"Due to heavy rains in the area, the river had strong currents, which also slowed down the search operation by the police and fire brigade, he said.
Wagh is yet to be traced," the official added.
