A fresh disaster has happened at the Likoni Channel in Mombasa after a car plunged into the Indian Ocean.
Eyewitnesses reported that a Saloon car was on the mainland side of the channel when the driver drove into the sea from the ramp at around 4.20 am Saturday.
According to Kenya Ferry Service (KFS) officials, the driver of the vehicle drove at high speed after purchasing a ticket and plunged into the water.
KFS immediately dispatched a rescue team in a bid to save the occupant(s) of the said vehicle even as a CCTV capture of the same made rounds on the web.
Zipo has established the driver of the car that nosedived into the ocean as 46-year-old John Mutinda. His body has been retrieved.
The incident comes barely three months after a woman and her daughter died at the channel after their car plunged into the ocean.
The Kenya Navy and professionals from abroad worked round the clock for two weeks to retrieve the bodies.
