Bodies of all three men — Aalaa Al Autibi, Fahad Aloseami and Abdullah Al Ausebi — were retrieved and shifted to a private hospital in Clifton, City SSP Adeel Hussain Chandio said.

Earlier, five people belonging to the same family drowned near Hawkesbay on August 14.

Rescue officials recovered four of the five bodies, including 16-year-old girl Dua, 40-year-old man Zakir, Ameen, and 20-year-old Osama.

A 17-year-old Hunza resident was saved by rescue workers.

The drowned people were residents of New Karachi and had gone for a picnic. 

Beachgoers are advised against bathing in the sea during the monsoon season due to rough waters by the authorities.
