Taipei, Sept. 2 (CNA) Seven people were swept into the ocean Sunday from a beach in Nan'ao Township and Neipi beach in Su'ao, both in Yilan County in northeastern Taiwan, two of whom were confirmed dead and four missing, while the seventh washed onshore was injured.
According to rescuers, a couple who were touring a sea cave and the owner of an all terrain vehicles business were swept away by a freak wave near the cave on Mystery Beach in Nan'ao Township.
The body of the husband was found, but his wife and the ATV business owner were still unaccounted for.
Later that day, also on the Mystery Beach, huge waves washed away a mother and her son on an ATV, sparking a search mission which was still ongoing as of 7 p.m.
On Neipi Beach in Su'ao Township, meanwhile, a girl who was enjoying the beach with her family was swept into sea by a rogue wave, prompting a man to dive in to rescue her.
The girl was washed onshore by waves, but the man had no vital signs when he was rescued and was later pronounced dead in a hospital.
