Two Teens Die after Slipping into Bnashii Lake

Two teens were killed on Monday after accidentally falling in Zgharta's Bnashii lake, the state-run National News Agency reported.

The teens were taking pictures after sitting for the final days of official exams, but suddenly they slipped and fell in the lake, the NNA detailed

According to the news agency, they were with dozens of their peers visiting the site after the exams, and they arrived in Bnashii on board four school buses coming from the northern city of Tripoli.

"Civil Defense crews and Red Cross volunteers looked for the two boys for a while, but they fell in a dangerous place to which access is forbidden,” the same source noted.

“The maritime rescue units of the Civil Defense crews then retrieved both of their bodies, and the Red Cross transferred them to a hospital in the region.”

They were both fifteen years old, remarked the NNA.
