Fishermen killed by electrical current in Transcarpathia

This morning, fishing for seven guys ended tragically. Two fishermen were killed by electrical current on the lake of a former brick factory in the village of Pavshino: a fishing rod got caught on a high-voltage transmission line, another four men got severe burns. They were taken to Mukachevo CRH. According to the head of the city-district Department of the Ministry of Emergency Vasiliy Pehnyo, the fate of one more person from the company is unknown. Rescuers are waiting for the arrival of divers from Uzhgorod, who will search the bottom of the lake. They hope that the guy has survived and because of the shock disappeared from the scene. According to preliminary information, the eldest was 34 years old, the youngest - 20.
