Three boys have drowned in a dam at Gxulu village in the Eastern Cape.

Police spokesperson Mzukisi Fatyela says their bodies have been retrieved. Two of the deceased were brothers.  

Fatyela says police divers struggled to retrieve the bodies in murky water.

Authorities say the boys were not experienced swimmers and got into trouble after swimming too far into the dam, which had recently been built.
