On Sunday March 25, six people of a 15-member family group that had come to Beirut for Nowruz holidays fell into the sea due to a harsh wave crashing on the rocky beach of Raouché, IRNA reported.
Local fishermen and rescue teams rushed to the scene of the incident and could save the lives of 3 people, but two of the victims, who were two girls, 9 and 15, died, and one man went missing. His body was recovered after two days in the waters.
Iran's embassy in Beirut in coordination with Lebanese organizations formed a special committee to follow up the issue.
The dead bodies are scheduled to be transported to Iran, along with the other family members.
