Updated 17:25 28. 6. 2022, 14:35 Tragedy in southern Slovakia. According to information from Markíza television, only an 11-year-old girl drowned in the Ružiná reservoir near Lučenec on Tuesday. Police and firefighters, who managed to find Timey’s body after a few hours, intervened on the spot. Timea was having fun by the water with her cousin and friend, without the presence of her parents, who were at work. The girls wanted to cool off in the tank on the way home from school. They went into the water despite the fact that neither of them could swim. The girls stayed in the shallows by the shore. The water there is only about 20 to 30 centimeters deep. However, a short distance from the region, the slope is two to three meters deep. It was there that the girl got up, crumbled, and began to drown. Her cousin reacted immediately, and even though she could not swim on her own, she tried to save her. The situation became even more complicated, because she also began to drown in deep water. Therefore, her friend quickly grabbed her hair, pulled her and rescued her. But Timei could no longer help and she disappeared below the surface. The whole incident happened around 1 p.m. Within twenty minutes, police and fire brigades intervened on the spot. Subsequently, divers began to look for the girl, which they finally managed. The water tank is currently closed to the public, so far they are just filling it. Reconstruction works are also taking place in the area.
