Rescue operation on the Vistula

The rescue operation is carried out with the use of seven boats and a jet ski. Divers are working on the spot, who go underwater in search of the missing man. About 40 firefighters are involved in the activities.

– The search is carried out on a section of the river about a kilometer long. Sonar is also on the way. The search is hampered by the low water level on the Vistula. It is a challenge for the helmsmen to maneuver in such conditions – informs junior brigadier Karol Marcinkowski from the Garwolin fire brigade.
