Chennai, Oct 23 (UNI) Holiday revelry turned tragic when four teenaged boys drowned in the sea off Marina beach last evening.
Police said the four -- Murthy (17), Rajesh (14), sons of a fruit vendor, and Ezhumalai (15) and Vinod (15) -- went for a swim near the Light House after playing cricket on the beach.
One of them was swept away by a big wave. Three others who went to his rescue also met with a watery grave.
While the bodies of Ezhumalai and Vinod were washed ashore this morning, a search is on to trace the other two bodies.
