Another canoeist believed drowned
Another canoeist is believed to have drowned on the river Cidlina, after overturning in a weir. A witness saw two young men go down and called for help but police officers were only able get to one of them. The other was swept downstream and police have so far not managed to find the body. Despite repeated warnings to stay off the country’s rivers, two other teens nearly drowned on the river Metuj. Both were drunk after spending a night at a music festival and took a boat out. Rescuers got them out in time. A sixteen-year-old girl drowned on a canoeing trip last weekend.
