A 42-year-old man drowned in the Zevenhuizerplas in Rotterdam on Monday. He was swimming with his teenage son when he disappeared under water, NOS reports.
The boy tried to save him, but to no avail. Emergency services pulled the Bleiswijk man's body out of the water after a 20 minute search. The emergency services believe that the man became exhausted while swimming and couldn't make it back to the shore.
