It is very difficult to search in a rapids with large rocks, says operations manager Fredrik Persson to Västerbottens-Kuriren.

It was on November 2 that two men ended up in the water while performing work on a bridge over the rapids.

One of the men was able to get ashore, the other remained in the water and could not be found.

It was at the suspension bridge at Gubbseleforsen in Vilhelmina that the accident occurred.
