Four vacationers off the coast of Crimea were carried out to sea on an inflatable mattress and a circle, the press service of the regional department of the EMERCOM of Russia reported, RIA Novosti writes.
The Russians were found near the village of Morskoye, in the southeast of Crimea, near Sudak. At sea, four people were seen on an air mattress and a circle. They gave distress signals. The vacationers were found at a distance of more than 900 meters from the coast and rescued.
Earlier, four Russians in Crimea went to swim in the sea and drowned in front of eyewitnesses. The incidents occurred on the beach of the village of Nikolaevka, in Evpatoria, Saki and the village of Kurortnoye. All vacationers disregarded safety rules and went swimming during bad weather.
Russians have been warned of the dangers of swimming in the Black Sea during a storm. It was noted that the most at risk are vacationers in a state of alcoholic intoxication. Often they want to “cool off” after dinner at a restaurant, throw themselves into the water late in the evening, but can no longer return to the shore.
