A man from Settimo Torinese disappeared in Lake Viverone, on the border between the provinces of Biella and Turin. The accident yesterday afternoon while the 43-year-old man was at the lake with his family. With him were his wife, daughter and boyfriend. The searches of the fire brigade and 118 divers lasted until it got dark without success and resumed at dawn today.
The family had rented a boat to navigate the lake and had reached a point where the water is deeper. The man and her daughter’s boyfriend dived but the father never re-emerged. It was his wife who gave the alarm and the searches began immediately but for now, no trace of the man. The man knew how to swim but it is not excluded that he may have been hit by an illness while he was in the water and for this reason he was no longer able to resurface and return to the boat. The police investigate the incident.
