A policeman collects statements from the grief-stricken family members of George Marshall who was washed away in the Sandy Gully, in St Andrew, yesterday.

An elderly man who was washed away by flood waters in St Andrew yesterday has been found dead.

The man, identified as George Marshall, was reportedly swept away by waters in the Sandy Gully, yesterday afternoon.

His body was found in the gully this morning.

Last week a young boy was saved from a similar fate.

Twelve-year-old Renaldo Reynolds, who is a student of Jones Town Primary, was on his way home from school when he and friends decided to play in the gully's rushing waters and was swept away.

He was saved by 24-year-old Tremayne Brown, who has been hailed as a hero by residents of Trench Town and Arnett Gardens.

He’s to receive a national award on Heroes Day.
