Florijana Ismaili - Swiss Footballer body found, Lake Como

Swiss footballer's body was found on Tuesday at a depth of 204 meters via a remote underwater vehicle in Lake Como after having gone missing since Saturday afternoon when she was last seen to dive into the lake from a boat her and a friend had rented. No explanation on what may have went wrong apart from potentially losing consciousness upon hitting the cold water


Tragic

At least she was only at 204m, the deepest parts of the lake are more than 400m deep!

I'm sure that her family and friends will find comfort in that.

Re: Florijana Ismaili - Swiss Footballer body found, Lake Como

Be wary of jumping into cold water when you're already hot. I once was hiking in the Sierras and jumped into the snowmelt-fed Kings River to cool off - the shock made me black out momentarily, i don't remember anything for maybe 10 seconds and i 'woke up' about 20m downstream, luckily with head above water.

Yes, that is the main theory at the moment in this case.
