A 32-year-old man died in the hospital after he was pulled out of the water on Wednesday after he had participated in the chain of life in Jantar. The second injured person is in hospital in serious condition.
Both people were transported on Wednesday by helicopter to hospitals from the beach in Jantar (Pomeranian Voivodeship).
Previously, along with other sunbathers, they participated in the chain of life by searching the bottom of the bathing beach in search of a person who was supposed to need help in the water.
High waves caused the four people who made up the life chain to melt. Two people got out of the water on their own. The other two were pulled out and resuscitated on the shore.
Press officer of the police in Nowy Dwór Gdański, Sgt. Karolina Figiel informed that a 32-year-old man, who was taken out of the water on Wednesday, died in the hospital. She added that there was a second 36-year-old man in a serious condition at the hospital.
The red flag
On Wednesday, after the search and rescue operation was completed, the police said that sunbathers who entered the water after 13 and formed a chain of life in search of a drowning person, they may have been misled by someone and there may be no one in the water.
Red flags were fluttering on Wednesday at the guarded bathing areas on the Vistula Spit due to high waves.
