THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: The body of Kalesh, 30, who had gone missing in the flash floods that wreaked havoc in the city last week, was found on Monday morning from Marappalam. With the death of Kalesh, the toll caused by the torrential rain which lashed the city has risen to six.  The body was found after two days’ search.  Kalesh was swept away on Saturday morning when he tried to rescue his son Adithyan, 3, who fell into the flood water. Adithyan was later found in the nearby bushes. He breathed his last on way to the hospital.

Kalesh, a daily wage labourer, was the son of Kumar and Suseela of Panayilveedu, Green Valley, Kowdiar.  He is survived by wife Raji. Adithyan was their only child. The body was found by the Fire and Rescue Services unit of Chengalchoola led by assistant station officer Ajayan.

The body of Kalesh will be cremated along with that of Adithyan’s on Tuesday.
