Big search operation – rower was rescued dead from the Attersee

Tragic mission for numerous helpers on Monday evening in Upper Austria: a rower had not returned to the shores of the Attersee and could only be recovered dead a little later.

A major search began shortly before 7 p.m. The water rescue services Nussdorf, Unterach, Weyregg and Litzlberg, several divers and three fire brigades from the area were alerted to a “rescue of people”. An empty rowboat had been discovered and the rower was missing.

A little later there was the sad certainty – the person they were looking for could only be recovered dead.
