Elderly man dies paddle-boarding on Lake Neuchâtel
A 72-year-old man has died after falling from a paddle-board in the canton of Vaud and disappearing underwater.
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.
