Aude: two 17-year-olds drowned at sea



DTwo 17-year-old teenagers drowned on Saturday off the beaches of Narbonne the day after a warning from the Aude prefecture against a “strong swell” phenomenon on the coast, we learned from the wooden floor.

“The two victims were 17 years old and came from Toulouse,” Narbonne prosecutor Éric Camous told Agence France-Presse. An investigation into the circumstances of the drowning has been opened, he added, stressing that medical examiners were due to examine the bodies on Monday.

Swimming not recommended

A third person who was with them was rescued and is in “relative emergency”, said the firefighters of Aude. The young people bathed some 150 m from the beach, according to the same source. “Dangerous swimming, strong swell expected on the Aude coast,” the Aude prefecture tweeted on Friday.

The prefectures of Hérault, Gironde and Charente-Maritime in particular have also advised against swimming this weekend on the coast due to dangerous weather phenomena.
