Udupi: Vivekananda (26), hailing from Puduchery and employed with Wipro India based in Bengaluru, was washed away by a huge wave while he had come on a visit with his friends on Saturday evening.

He, along with four others, had arrived in Udupi to attend a colleague’s wedding. In the afternoon the five of them had gone to visit St Mary’s Isles off Malpe beach.

After going around the isles, Vivekananda and Manikanthan, sat on a rock to view the seascape. A huge wave splashed on them and they both fell into the sea.
