EWN has learnt that Adamantia High School pupil Mellony Sias died during a water activity at the very same camp ten years ago.

As an investigation into the death of Enoch Mpianzi continues Eyewitness News (EWN) has learnt of a similar incident at the Nyati Bush and River Break campsite where the drowning occurred.

The 13-year-old Parktown Boys' High School died last week in the Crocodile River where he was last seen on a raft.

Two sources have confirmed to EWN that a Grade 12 pupil from Adamantia High School in Kimberley, Mellony Sias, died during a water activity at the very same camp ten years ago. She was attending a hockey training camp.

EWN reporter Mia Lindeque reports.

We have got that confirmation. I managed to speak to the school who confirmed that information for me. When I called them, they immediately knew why I was calling.

Another source who was part of the search and rescue of that specific girl also confirmed the information to us.
