The incident occurred during Thursday’s match between Legia Warszawa and AZ Alkmaar as part of the European Conference League competition.

– At one point, at the height of the southern stand, the police officers of the Police Prevention Unit who were securing the match noticed a person waving his hands at them and calling for help. They immediately moved towards the canal and, using transport belts, which they connected into a rescue rope, helped the man get to the shore – describes Edyta Adamus from the Warsaw Police Headquarters.

Immersed up to his neck in mud

The man was weak and cold, but he managed to grab the rope and tie himself with it. – Then the police quickly and decisively pulled the man out of the mud in which he was immersed up to his neck – says Adamus.

The 33-year-old was in mortal danger. On Thursday, the outside temperature was around 0 degrees. – Immediately after pulling him out of the water, the police took off the man’s wet clothes and covered him with a thermal blanket. As it turned out, the 33-year-old was completely cold, soaked, lost feeling in his arms and legs and felt bad, the policewoman reports.

The man was taken to hospital. In a conversation with the police, he admitted that he wanted to take a shortcut to the stadium and mistook the frozen canal for wet asphalt.
