Even as the country continues to come to terms with the horrible accident that claimed the life of a K24 journalist in Kerio River, many are thankful that the ill-fated vehicle was located and retrieved in good time.
But the whole process couldn’t have been effective and faster were it not for the prompt and swift action by the local divers of Cheploch river.
Known for their breathtaking diving techniques, the daredevil Cheploch divers have become famous in the past for their immense efforts in saving lives of people, who have fallen into the deep gorge.
The divers are said to have swang into action from as early as 4 am, where they successfully located the car at one of the spots in the river.
The divers, who have not attended any professional diving lessons or courses, managed to successfully locate the wreckage in good time, despite not having any oxygen masks and facing numerous challenges in the deep gorge which is infested by dangerous crocodiles.
