The message is being reinforced after a video on social media shows a young woman jumping in and narrowly missing another swimmer already in the water. 

The cantonal justice department say that police patrol the bridges and can fine jumpers CHF 150. 

The local lifeguard association also says there’s a chance of debris just under the surface of the river.
