    Thanks to the responders for their actions. The individuals involved in this were my nephew and the husband of my first cousin (the older gentleman). As of this morning (Sunday, 27 July) we understand that the older gentleman did not survive and the body has been recovered.

    Our thoughts and prayers go to my first cousin on the loss of her husband.
