The body of a second Irish kayaker has been found in Ecuador.
David Higgins, who lived in Galway but was originally from Co Kerry, was one of a group of kayakers who got into difficulty while navigating the River Abanico on Saturday.
20-year old year-old Alex McGourty from Sligo also died in the incident – his body was recovered on Sunday.
The Department of Foreign Affairs confirmed this morning that the body of David Higgins has been recovered from a tributary of the river they had been kayaking in.
Mr Higgins was a graduate of NUI Galway and an active member of the NUIG kayak club.
