Why many are drowning at Senegal's 'death beaches'

Drownings in Senegal's capital city Dakar have spiked this year as residents flock to beaches to take a dip in the Atlantic waters during periods of hot weather.

In the first six months of 2021, 48 people have drowned in the Dakar region, four more than over the same period last year.

Authorities say they have stepped up surveillance and preventive measures as a result of the trend.
