On Tuesday morning, in the town of Woroblin (Lublin Province), the Border Guard detained a Syrian citizen who illegally crossed the Polish-Belarusian border on the Bug River. He said he was pushed into the river by Belarusian services. He informed about a second man who was supposed to be in a similar situation. The search was started. As firefighters comment, such actions are particularly difficult.

The spokesman of the Bug River Border Guard Unit, Lieutenant Dariusz Sienicki, informed that on Tuesday morning a Syrian citizen was detained in the village of Woroblin in the Janów Podlaski commune, who tried to cross the border river Bug.

– According to his testimony, he was pushed into the river by the Belarusian services, probably with another man. Now we are searching for the other person, said the spokesman.

Firemen were sent to the site, including those from the water and diving group from Sokołów Podlaski and Lublin.

“There are twelve fire brigades on site in total.” The search is still ongoing – said in the afternoon on TVN24 senior brigadier Michał Badach from the Provincial Headquarters of the State Fire Service in Lublin.

Specialized equipment is needed

He added that exploration operations on rivers are particularly difficult. – Unlike, for example, lakes, rivers keep flowing. A person who could drown can therefore move around, he noted.


He explained what the action looks like with the use of specialized equipment. – At the beginning, of course, we use sonar, which allows us to initially examine the riverbed and check the places where someone may be, said the senior brig. Badach.
