A man died in a diving accident in Sion. The course of the accident is being investigated. The Valais canton police are looking for witnesses.
On Tuesday, around 8:30 p.m., a third person discovered a body floating on the water in the lake at the Domaine des Iles in Sion. As the Valais cantonal police wrote in a statement on Wednesday, two people were able to pull the diver to shore. There, however, the rescue workers could only determine his death.

The prosecutor has opened an investigation to clarify the circumstances of the incident. The police ask people who have observed something to report.
