Water policing and lifeguards are looking for the bodies of two young men in Lake Balaton. The boys sank 300-350 meters from the shores of Lake Balaton on Saturday night, a spokesman for the Somogy County Police Headquarters reported.

According to Zoltán Orbán, a report was received by the police at 7:38 p.m. on Saturday that a 17-year-old and an 18-year-old boy from Bódvalenke had disappeared in the water. The young people went swimming in Lake Balaton with their third partner and were already climbing out on a surfboard when the two of them were immersed. The third young man was helped by a boat to get ashore after hearing the boys’ cries for help. Police and water police immediately began searching with a sonar for the missing men. The search is ongoing. There was no storm signal at the time the boys were submerged. No hostility has arisen, so the case is expected to be investigated through an administrative efficiency procedure, the spokesman told MTI.
