A sudden alarm was raised as pandemonium broke in the ferry. The captain and his crew called for calm as the situation was assessed.

According to an eyewitness who was traveling with his nephew on the Kunta Kunteh, there was no trace of the man all the time the ferry stopped in the middle of the water as ferry officials contacted the fire and ambulance service as well as the Navy about the incident.

It was not clear whether the man jumped into the water intentionally or lost his balance and fell over. Up until press time last night, a frenzied search was underway for the missing passenger.s
