The tragedy took place on the Tisa River.
LITTLE TRAKANS. The tragedy happened in Male Trakani on the Tisa River, at that time there were many vacationers. Markíza Television informed about this.
None of the witnesses said the man was in trouble in the water. The widower yelled for help, but at the beginning no one on the shore took him seriously.
"I thought he was joking," one of the witnesses told television.
When observers discovered that the man was indeed in difficulty, they tried to help him and handed him a long stick. It didn't help, the man's body disappeared beneath the surface.
Behind him, no one dared to enter the water because it was deep in that stretch.
The search was undertaken by police and boat firefighters. However, the man has not yet been found.
The body could be washed to the Hungarian side, so the police turned to their counterparts outside the border.
"Police are searching the river and the surrounding area with a service dog, unsuccessfully so far," police spokeswoman Yana Mesarova said Tuesday afternoon.
Divers also got involved.
