The serene shores of Mamallapuram turned into a scene of despair as sea waves swept away a group of college students from Andhra Pradesh. Out of the 10 students who ventured into the waters for a refreshing dip, tragedy struck when a massive wave engulfed them, leaving screams echoing across the beach.

Efforts to rescue the students proved futile as the relentless waves thwarted all attempts. Despite the swift response of Mamallapuram authorities and rescue teams, the sea claimed the lives of several young souls.

As the search and rescue operation unfolded, the community held its breath, hoping for a miracle. Sadly, the toll of the tragedy became painfully clear as the bodies of Sesha Reddy, Monish, and Pethuraj Prabhu were recovered from the unforgiving waters.
