Cape Town -

The body of a six-year-old girl who was washed off rocks in Mouille Point was retrieved on Wednesday, the City of Cape Town said.

Spokesman Wilfred Solomons-Johannes said divers retrieved the body of Bukho Ntsondwa, from Nyanga at 10am.

She was washed off the rocks on Christmas Day, when a wave washed her off.

Rescue teams called off the search on Tuesday night due to rough sea conditions and poor visibility.

“The search resumed on Wednesday, and the body discovered entangled under bamboos some 10 metres away from where the incident took place,” he said. - Sapa
