Drunk Russians Drown in Droves

Bloomberg.com: Europe

“When it’s hot, people swim in unsupervised places,” said Natalya Zoltseva, a spokeswoman for Russia’s Emergencies Ministry, by telephone in Moscow today. “They have alcoholic drinks and then they dive in.”

The ministry collects daily figures on “events in swimming pools” and posts them on its Web site. Six hundred have died since July 1, 291 of them in the last five days alone. Today’s posting, covering the 24 hours until 6 a.m. this morning, reads “information received about 76 events. 84 people suffered. 19 saved. 65 dead.”…

You got to figure that lifeguards aren’t a big priority in the РОДИНА…or maybe they’re drunk too.
