The husband and wife drowned in the Bukhtarma reservoir of East Kazakhstan region, Kazpravda.kz refers to the Instagram account of East Kazakhstan region’s Emergency Situations Department.
On July 27, 2021, in Kokpekty district on the coast of the Bukhtarma reservoir, a man and a woman drowned while swimming in an unequipped place.
According to eyewitnesses, the woman swam far from the coast and began to drown. Seeing this, her husband rushed to her aid, but went under water and drowned.
As noted by rescuers, people most often drown as a result of excessive self-confidence in their abilities. According to the statistics of accidents on water bodies, it is precisely those who believed that they could swim well and swam long distances from the coast that died. Also on the list of death causes is the choice of unequipped bathing places.
