Two Nigerian men have drowned in Malta in a tragic incident that involved one of the men trying to rescue the other.

The incident happened at Dawret il-G?ejjer in St Paul’s Bay around 12.15am on Saturday, May 22.

Police said that investigations had so far shown that one of the men fell into the sea and began experiencing difficulties.

The other man began shouting for help and jumped into the sea in attempt to help his friend but also found himself in difficulties while swimming. 

Both the Armed Forces of Malta and the Civil Protection Department rushed to the scene to rescue the men, but unfortunately, both were pronounced dead on site.

An inquiry into the case is being led by Magistrate Claire Strafrace Zammit.

In an interview with a Malta news portal, the brother of the Nigerian who tried to save his friend described him as a nice person.

Very sad !!!
