The body of 22-year-old Alexander Godbold has been found in a water-filled quarry
A body has been pulled from a quarry of water after a Church Crookham man slipped and fell into it while he visited with friends.
Hampshire Constabulary has named the man as Alexander Godbold, 22, from Reading Road South, Church Crookham.
He was discovered in the quarry in Bakers Farm Nursery in Kingsley, south of Farnham after a search.
The man had been at the quarry with friends when he lost his footing and fell in to the 40m-deep water at around 6.15pm on Saturday August 31.
When he did not resurface, emergency services were alerted and a search was carried out by police, Hampshire Fire and Rescue Service and the coastguard. It is thought that he drowned.
Hampshire Fire and Rescue Service group manager Brian Rudman said: “We advise everyone to be extra vigilant around areas of water and to know the risks.
"Quarries are not for swimming - water may look safe but it can be very dangerous. Don’t go to areas of water alone or if you do, make sure you tell someone where you are going and when you expect to return, take extra care around the waters edge and learn the how to help yourself and others if you find yourself in an emergency situation.
“If you see someone in difficulty, dial 999 and ask for the police at inland water sites and the coastguard at the beach.”
