A 29-year-old man drowned in Lake Mąkowarskie (West Pomeranian Voivodeship). According to the police, he entered the water to swim, he dived and never came out.

– As a result of the search and rescue operation, the divers found the body of a young man. He is a 29-year-old who, as it was initially established, entered Lake Mąkowarskie, dived and did not swim anymore – said Irena Kornicz from the KWP press team in Szczecin

Another tragedy took place on Saturday at Lake Wielim in the town of Gwda Wielka. There, after 1 p.m., the services received information that an empty pontoon had been spotted in the water. After 4 p.m., Captain Tomasz Kubiak from the Szczecin police said that the body of the wanted person had been tracked using sonar. The divers went down to bring them out.
Appeals for reason
West Pomeranian rescuers also asked for responsible behavior in the water. “We are on duty 24 hours a day with you in mind, but we would prefer not to meet you during the shift. Be healthy and take care of yourself” – they wrote.
The high temperature, which on Saturday morning in West Pomerania exceeded 20 degrees Celsius, and sunny weather are conducive to rest on the Baltic Sea. The West Pomeranian police appeals for reason over the water and points out that “bathing in unguarded places and alcohol are the main causes of drowning”.
