Friday evening it went completely wrong around 7.30 pm when the boy from The Hague was swimming with two others. The three teenagers got into trouble because of the strong current. Passers-by managed to save two teenagers, but the boy from The Hague could no longer be found.
The alarm was raised and a large search was started with, among others, the Coast Guard, KNRM, Rescue Brigade, fire brigade, National Police Unit and many volunteers. The 15-year-old boy was then searched in vain all evening. The search was resumed on Saturday, but that did not yield any results either.
