Rescuers from the Sopot Water Volunteer Rescue Service were looking for an eight-year-old girl after her mother reported the child missing. The girl was found after about 1.5 hours at one of the entrances to the beach in Gdańsk, four kilometers from Sopot.

The president of the Sopot Water Volunteer Rescue Service, Maciej Dziubich, announced on Sunday that the incident took place the previous day. On the Sopot beach – as he reported – the woman reported her daughter missing because she had not been able to find her for several minutes.

Dziubich noted that when rescuers hear such a message, they always ask if it was possible for the child to enter the water. In this case, there was no such possibility, so the rescuers began to intensively observe the beaches of Sopot from towers and quads in order to find the child. They also checked a 200-meter stretch of water using a drone along with a watercraft.

After about 40 minutes, one of the sunbathers noticed a girl on the beach in Gdańsk Jelitkowo, heading towards Brzeźno. There were also rescuers on a quad. – After about 1.5 hours of searching, our Q4 unit found the girl at entrance 58 in Gdańsk. It turned out that an 8-year-old girl walked a distance of about 4 km on her own, Dziubich noted. Entrance no. 58 is about 1.5 km from Jelitkowo, where the child was noticed by a sunbather.

The president of the Sopot WOPR appealed to parents to watch over their children at every step. – We suggest equipping children with wristbands with their parents’ phone number to facilitate contact if necessary. Such wristbands can be obtained for free directly from our rescuers – he noted.
