Straubing (dpa / lby) – While swimming in the Danube in Straubing, a 26-year-old went bankrupt on Monday evening. The search for him, in which a police helicopter was involved, has so far been unsuccessful, as police reported. The man, an apparently experienced swimmer, had gone swimming with a co-worker and had clearly been in trouble. The colleague was taken in by crisis intervention. Lower Bavaria Police Headquarters have asked eyewitnesses to introduce themselves.
