Heartbreaking Moment Child Records His Father Drowning. In an emotional video that has been posted online, a child watched their father drowning as he failed to swim in a river.
The kid could be heard calling the drowning man ‘daddy’ hoping he would get out of the water. The oblivious kid is unaware of the danger his dad is in and even tells him that he is “leaving”
The video was shared online by one Palesa with a caption:
“Let’s not get into foreign waters especially when you can’t even swim… We don’t even know what in there. The poor little boy now had to witness his father die.”
In another video shared on social media, the rescue team of divers is seen retrieving the body from the deep waters.
The video attracted different views from social media users with most of them condemning those who posted and shared the video.
Others warned people to avoid swimming in the dam as it was dangerous.
Mancoba Dludlu, who reposted the video on twitter, was attacked by viewers for sharing such a very sensitive clip on social media.
It was after the attacks that Dludlu decided to later write an apology which he then posted on to his twitter account.
In his letter of apology, Dludlu stated that he was not thinking properly when he posted the video and that he had realised that what he had done was offensive.
“It was never my intention to cause anyone distress. Looking back, however, I can clearly see that I did not think things through before posting it. Next time I will make sure that I weigh everything before posting, and choose something that is not controversial,” read his apology.
He further wrote that he hoped people would forgive him for making them uncomfortable. Commentators accepted and appreciated Dludlu’s apology and commended him for showing remorse in posting an apology letter, something that other people would have not done.
