MAUN: Human remains have been recovered in the Thamalakane River at the popular Big Tree entertainment spot. Maun Station Commander, Superintendent Peter Gochela, said the bones were discovered by children who were swimming in the river, who then notified a man who was passing by.

Gochela said the bones retrieved appear to be of a  human skeleton.
