AN 18-year-old Mberengwa man drowned Sunday while trying to retrieve a floating duck he had struck earlier using a catapult before it fell inside a dam.

The duck had been part of a flock.

Police have confirmed the death of Timothy Moyo from the fateful hunting expedition.

“During the hunting expedition, Timothy is said have shot and killed a duck from a flock and it floated in the middle of the dam.

“He then started swimming into the dam to get his catch and on his way back he could not reach to the shores and drowned,” said Midlands provincial police spokesperson, Inspector Joel Goko.
