Egelsbach (dpa / lhe) - A 20-year-old man probably drowned in a lake in front of his companions. According to the police headquarters in southern Hesse, he was swimming with friends on Tuesday evening at Egelsbacher See in the Offenbach district, where swimming is not allowed. The Hessischer Rundfunk (hr) had previously reported.
According to the police, the man from Neu-Isenburg went into the water with an air mattress. Then the air mattress lost air and the man went under, a police spokesman told the German Press Agency on Wednesday. The search was called off after two hours. Do not assume that the man is still alive. An attempt is to be made to recover the body on Wednesday. According to the police, the lake is up to twelve meters deep.
