In May, five people lost their lives in drowning accidents in Norway. So far this year, 25 people have drowned in the country, according to the Norwegian Society for Sea Rescue (Redningsselskapet).

In addition, two drowning accidents involving Norwegian citizens abroad were registered, including a woman in her 20s who drowned in Turkey in May.

The Society for Sea Rescue warns people that summer is high season for drowning accidents. On average, 40% of all drowning accidents occur between June and August.

“Think about how to make trips by boat, to the beach, or along the sea and water as safe as possible this summer,” Tanja Krangnes, head of drowning prevention at the Society for Sea Rescue, stated.

    And the sad thing is this organization is struggling with their finances to save people’s lives and supported only by donations from private people.
