Two people drowned on Saturday as many people sought relief in pools, lakes and rivers from record temperatures. A 22-year-old man drowned in a lake near the central Bohemian town of Brandýs nad Labem. He is thought to have to have got into difficulties when trying to rescue a child who fell from their inflatable. His body has still not been recovered. A woman was found drowned at the family pool at the town of Zadní Třeban in central Bohemia.
