Update On Church Members Who Were Swept Away By Flash Floods During Baptism Ceremony

The death toll in the Jukskei River drownings has risen to nine, up from two reported earlier.

Seven more bodies were discovered in the river on Sunday, eNCA News reported citing Johannesburg Emergency Services spokesperson Robert Mulaudzi.

About 15 church members were reportedly swept away by flash floods in Johannesburg, South Africa on Saturday while conducting a baptism ceremony.

Several worshippers are still missing.

They were conducting a baptism ritual in the Jukskei River and were caught in a flash flood following heavy rains in the Bramley Park area.

Part of Grayston Drive was closed on Saturday as emergency medical services scoured the area for survivors and more bodies, according to The Citizen.

At least 20 bodies had been pulled from the river early on Saturday evening, The Citizen reported citing a Private Security company, Vision Tactical.

It is believed that some of the victims were children.
