Sixth person dies in Lake Garda in a month as search for British father continues

Polish national died in an accident at Lake Garda, Italy. This is the sixth death there in a month.

The 42-year old went in the sea at Desenzanino beach, but failed to surface. His friend alerted the coastguard.

According to Italian media, fire brigade divers found the body of the man two metres (6.5″) deep.

As the search continues for Briton Aran Chada, who disappeared underwater after saving his teenage son’s life, his death is a tragic result.

On Friday, the 51-year-old sales manager from the Leicestershirevillage Woodhouse Eaves hired a boat to take with him and his two children, Limone.

The boys were only 500m (0.3 mi) away from the shore when Mr Chada’s 14-year old son became involved in trouble in the water.

Mr Chada dived in to save himself, but then he got into trouble and fell below the surface.

Since then, he has been missing and it is feared that he may have drowned.

According to a coastguard spokesperson, “The man dived in order to save his oldest son, who was in trouble. He managed to push him back into the boat but then got into trouble.”

“It was extremely hot Friday afternoon, but it was 10 degrees cooler in the water, so it’s possible that he suffered a seizure due to the shock.”

Lake Garda temperatures have reached 31C over the past week.

According to media reports, Hasnain Zeb, a 33-year-old Pakistani citizen, jumped from a pedal boat into the lake at June’s end.

Alessandro Redaell (41), a native of Lecco, northern Italy, was also found dead after diving into the sea from a boat.
