Aindling (dpa / lby) - A 70-year-old died in an accident in a bathing lake in Swabia. The man suddenly stopped swimming, went under and never showed up again, the police said in Augsburg on Saturday. He may have suffered from physical ailments. His wife observed what was happening in the lake near Aindling (Aichach-Friedberg district) from the shore, officials said.
Since the incident on Friday afternoon, helpers have been looking for the missing person. The search continued on Saturday, but the investigators no longer assume that the 70-year-old will still be alive.
