A 34-year-old man drowned on Saturday in the Ostravice River in Frýdlant after jumping off a weir into the water to try and save his dog caught in a whirlpool. He was himself caught and dragged under. Rescuers called to the scene pulled the man from the water after some 20 minutes and tried to save his life. They were able to only briefly resuscitate his heart.
