Two people have died and five others are missing, feared dead, after a flash flood on September 1 at Kenya’s Hell’s Gate national park, the Kenyan Wildlife Service said.
“The victims are five Kenyans, local tourist guide and a non-resident (foreigner),” the KWS posted on its Twitter account. “Two bodies recovered while five bodies missing.” A KWS official earlier told that search and rescue work had been suspended for the night.
The missing were part of a 12-strong group visiting Hell’s Gate — where the 2003 film “Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life” was shot — when they were swept away.
Two survivors from the group alerted park rangers, who sent out a search party. There was no sign of the others, Rift Valley police chief Marcus Ochola told.
