A 40-year-old man has drowned along the Natanya shore. The beach he was swimming in is reserved for religious Jews and was closed on Saturday. MDA paramedics attempted to resituate the man but were eventually forced to declare him dead.
In another incident, a 60-year-old man was pulled out of the sea without life near Sdot Yam. Earlier, in the same beach, two 20-year-olds were pulled from the water in light and moderate condition. (Raanan Ben-Zur)
