Six Venezuelan School Children Rescued After Canoe Capsizes in Guyana's Cuyuni River 2

In Guyana, six children were rescued late Tuesday after their canoe capsized while they were returning home to Venezuela. The incident occurred on the Cuyuni River, which borders Guyana and Venezuela.

The children, students of the Eteringbang Primary School in Guyana, were traveling back to their community in San Martin, Venezuela, when their canoe sank. Fortunately, quick action by public-spirited individuals led to their rescue.

Following the rescue, the children were examined at the Eteringbang Health Centre in the presence of their parents. While they were found to be in good physical health, they were understandably traumatized by the ordeal. The ages of the students range from 6 to 11 years.

Despite the ongoing border controversy between Guyana and Venezuela, citizens of both South American countries continue to move freely across the border. This incident underscores the close ties between the two nations, as well as the challenges faced by those living in border regions.
