Schwimm-EM: Bewusstlose Langstreckenschwimmerin Natalia Charlos aus dem Wasser gerettet

Schwimm-EM: Bewusstlose Langstreckenschwimmerin Natalia Charlos aus dem Wasser gerettet

Der Auftakt der Schwimm-EM in Berlin ist von einem dramatischen Zwischenfall überschattet worden. Die völlig erschöpfte polnische Langstreckenschwimmerin Natalie Charlos, die in Elmshorn lebt und trainiert, verlor kurz vor dem Ziel im 10-km-Rennen das Bewusstsein und musste von Helfern der Deutschen Lebens-Rettungs-Gesellschaft (DLRG) aus dem Wasser gezogen werden.

Nach einer längeren Behandlung an Land durch den deutschen Teamarzt Alexander Beck befand sich die Athletin aber wieder in einem stabilen Zustand. Die 21-Jährige wurde ins Krankenhaus zur näheren Untersuchung gebracht. Der eigens herbeigeeilte ADAC-Rettungshubschrauber wurde nicht gebraucht.
