The man was at Lake Neuchâtel near Yvonand with his family yesterday afternoon when the tragedy happened. The man’s body was located by a REGA helicopter team. Divers found the man more than two metres below the surface of the lake just 250 metres from the water’s edge. A doctor, who was on holiday in the region, tried to resuscitate the man when he was pulled from the water but he was already dead.
