A Czech with whom the raft overturned drowned in Slovakia

On Saturday evening, the Slovak police from Liptovský Hrádok asked the HZS to cooperate in the search for the missing raft. “During the rafting of the river Belá, a raft overturned with him in the part below Hrdov,” said mountain rescuers on the social network.

There was also a woman in the raft, but she managed to get ashore. “A strong current carried the man downstream. Four HZS handlers were used in the search, who searched for the missing from Hrdov to Starý salaš, “stated the mountain rescuers.

The drone search continued on Sunday.

Firefighters also took part in the event, but by dusk they managed to find only a raft and a missing helmet.

“The search continued again on Sunday morning with the participation of dog handlers and this time with the help of a drone. In the afternoon, the service dog marked a place about 800 meters below the Old Mountain, almost two kilometers from the place of overturning, where the body of the missing was wedged between the tree trunks. The body remains of a 62-year-old man of Czech nationality were rescued from the river by mountain rescuers and firefighters and handed over to members of the police, “added the Mountain Rescue Service.
