A 24-year-old man drowned today (Thursday) while bathing in the Sea of Galilee, on the separate beach in Tiberias. MDA staff who arrived at the scene performed resuscitation operations but in the end were forced to determine his death. Israeli police officers were called to the incident and began collecting evidence and collecting findings to investigate the circumstances of the case.
A paramedic on the MDA-Israel Lugassi sea-bullying boat said: “When we reached the shore, our lifeguard friend used the man from the water and performed basic resuscitation operations on him. We continued the medical treatment and performed advanced and prolonged resuscitation operations that included resuscitation, massages and medication, but unfortunately in the end we had to determine his death. “
This is not the first drowning case in the Sea of Galilee this month: Earlier this week, a 7-year-old boy drowned on Dugit Beach. The boy, who was staying at the place with his family, was pulled from the water and evacuated by the medical staff in critical condition to the “Pada Poria” hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
Police forces arrived at the scene and began investigating the circumstances of the case. According to data from the organization Before Child Safety, since 2015, 111 children have drowned and in 2020, seven children have drowned.
These cases joined a series of tragic drownings that occurred last month across the country: an 80-year-old man drowned on Crimson Beach in Acre, and a few hours later, a report was received of the drowning of a 77-year-old woman on Geula Beach in Tel Aviv.
