A Tourist Boat Sinks On Lake Maggiore, Resulting In The Death Of Four People
A tourist boat sinks on Lake Maggiore, resulting in the death of four people. On Lake Maggiore in northern Italy, severe winds caused the sinking of a boat that was carrying more than 20 passengers, including tourists.
The accident resulted in the deaths of four persons. According to reports from Italian media outlets, the boat capsized on Sunday evening between the villages of Sesto Calende and Arona.
There were a total of five people rescued and sent to the hospital. According to claims that have not been independently verified, the victims are said to be Italian, Israeli, and Russian. It is believed that the Russian woman who was one of them was the girlfriend of the person who was sailing the boat.
The president of the Lombardy region, Attilio Fontana, stated that the "very serious incident" occurred as a result of the terrible weather. According to what he posted on Facebook, the length of the boat was 16 meters (52 feet), and it had been chartered by visitors.
The boat was said to have been carrying around 25 people who were celebrating a birthday at the time when a storm erupted over the lake and eventually turned into a "small hurricane." This information comes from Italian news agencies. Soon later, the boat flipped over and went down in the water.

At the lake's southernmost end, rescue divers and a helicopter were dispatched to assist with the search for the missing person, and numerous ambulances and an air ambulance arrived at the scene. Chairs and other debris were seen drifting in the turbulent seas in a video that was uploaded by the firemen.
