The water police rescued more than a dozen people from Lake Balaton due to the storms


The stormy wind that arrived in the early afternoon suddenly whipped up waves on Lake Balaton, and in several cases the beachgoers found themselves in a situation from which they would not have been able to reach the shore safely without the help of the water police.

Passengers of sailboats that had a technical fault or ran aground, surfers who drifted in strong waves, pedal boats and exhausted swimmers had to be rescued from the water on Friday.

The police drew attention to the fact that most dangerous situations can be prevented by taking into account the storm warning, good situation assessment and observing the basic safety measures.
