BEIJING (AP) — Four boys drowned off the coast of southern China this weekend while searching for duck eggs in a bay, officials said.

The city of Beihai in the southern province of Guangxi said in a statement online that the four boys — three of them aged 12 and one of them 11 — were searching in a city bay Saturday afternoon when they drowned.

They were part of a group of eight boys that went egg hunting. Two of them drowned and two went missing, prompting a search. Later, authorities found two additional bodies.

Local authorities said they were consoling parents of the boys.
