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. According to the police, it is a 49-year-old man from Lower Valais.

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