German tourist drowns in Jutland

Attempts to save life of 30-year-old in vain

A German man in his 30s has perished while swimming of the west coast of Jutland near Hvide Sande.

“He was out swimming when he was caught by the current,” said the duty officer at the Mid and West Jutland Police.

The man’s relatives were watching from the beach and could see that he was in trouble and sounded the alarm.

Sad outcome
A lifeboat from Hvide Sande brought the man ashore and he was airlifted by helicopter to Aarhus University Hospital.

But it was too late.

“Rescuers in both the lifeboat and helicopter attempted resuscitation, but he was pronounced dead on arrival at the hospital,” said the duty officer.
