Man dies in Zurich after jumping from crane to lake
A man has died in Zurich after jumping off a disused crane into the lake.
The crane is well known for thrill seekers – but the owners say it should not be used as a diving board.
The crane is in the Kreis 2 region of the city and stands about 10m high.
Two people jumped at the same time. But one failed to surface. His was found by police half an hour later on the lake floor, about 3.5 meters down.
Rescue services tried to resuscitate the victim – but he was pronounced dead in hospital.
