Two men die after being pulled from the River Avon in Bath – The Sun

TWO men have died today after being pulled from the River Avon.

Police said the deaths are not suspicious, after they were called to the river by concerned witnesses this afternoon.

It is thought four people jumped into the water in Bath after seeing the pair in trouble.

But they were unable to rescue the men, thought to both be in their 20s.

Somerset Live reports the pair became "lost underwater".

Fire and rescue teams from Bristol and Bath searched the river and brought two bodies ashore.

They were found after being in the water near Toll Bridge Road, which is a little way out of the main city.

Avon and Somerset Police tweeted: "We were called at 4.12pm by the ambulance service amid concern for people in the water near Toll Bridge in Bath.

"A rescue operation was subsequently led by Avon Fire and Rescue Service.

"Two adult casualties were rescued and given into the care of the ambulance service.

"However, both males were pronounced dead at the scene.

"We are not treating the circumstance around the deaths as suspicious at this time. The deaths will be referred to the coroner."

It comes as the UK has enjoyed weeks of sunny and warm weather while in lockdown.
