The 16-year-old fell into the water and disappeared

In mid-March, a 16-year-old boy was carried away by the Wisłok stream, after – according to the police report – he entered the water himself at the sight of officers approaching him.

– The police decided to find out the reason for his nervous behavior. Two officers got out of the car and started heading towards him, then the man ran into Wisłok at the level of Spytka Ligęza Street and was swept away by the current. The policemen wanted to help him, other officers joined them, the four of them entered the river and formed the so-called chain of life, but they were unable to help him and pull him out – Magdalena Żuk reported at the time.

In the following days, firefighters equipped with sonar boats searched for the boy, but to no avail.
