Several of the swimmers got into difficulty in the water. A couple who were still on the boat managed to call rescue services for help.

A search involving helicopters, divers and sniffer dogs on the shore was launched immediately near Thalwil. All but two of the swimmers were safely rescued. The body of an 86-year-old woman was found near the boat. Her 79-year-old husband is still missing. Rescue teams will continue to search for the man today.
