Rescuer appeals to tourists
“Ladoga accepts drunks”: the Ministry of Emergency Situations of Karelia explained the reasons for the death of tourists on the lakes
The Ministry of Emergency Situations of Karelia explained why tourists often die on local lakes. Yury Istranin, Senior State Inspector for Small Vessels of the GIMS Center of the Main Directorate of the Ministry of Emergency Situations of the Russian Federation for Karelia, gave an explanation.
He directly appealed to local residents and tourists on social networks with a sincere appeal. According to the rescuer, only in the last two weeks seven people drowned in Karelia. Most of them are tourists.
«The reasons are different, but there is a main reason. You all know her well. This is the consumption of alcoholic beverages on the water. Ladoga accepts everyone, and especially drunks», — Istranin said.
The second reason for the frequent death of tourists on the lakes is the poor condition of small boats. Often travelers are overconfident in choosing a boat, which can ruin them.
