THE body of a man that washed up on the beach on Friday afternoon has been identified as the fourth victim of the capsized Dan Jose vessel, while two more bodies were found early Saturday morning.
Police Deputy Commissioner Ottilie Kashuupulwa told Nampa on Saturday that all three bodies have been identified as crew members of the boat that sank on July 26.
The last two bodies were found by a Swakopmund resident who was driving along the beach near the salt pans en route to Henties Bay.
Police and members of the Swakopmund emergency services rushed to scene to retrieve the remains of the men, who cannot be named yet, as their families have not been informed of their death.
The boat with seven men on board capsized about one kilometre off Mile 7.
One survivor, David Alweendo, managed to swim to shore and call for help.
He told the police that water swamped the back of the boat and a strong wind caused it to capsize.
The other bodies recovered are those of the skipper, Daniel Klopper, and crew members Thomas Haikongo and Ervast Tshavuka Andreas.
