A tragedy has occurred at sea in Occitania.

Two 17-year-old teenagers drowned on Saturday off the beaches of Narbonne the day after a warning from the Aude prefecture against a "strong swell" phenomenon on the coast, we learned from the wooden floor.

“Dangerous swimming, strong swell expected on the Aude coast,” the Aude prefecture tweeted on Friday.

The prefectures of Hérault, Gironde and Charente-Maritime in particular have also advised against swimming this weekend on the coast due to dangerous weather phenomena.

A third person in “relative emergency”

“The two victims were 17 years old and came from Toulouse,” said Narbonne prosecutor Eric Camous.

An investigation into the circumstances of the drowning has been opened, he added, stressing that medical examiners were due to examine the bodies on Monday.

A third person who was with them was rescued and is in "relative emergency", said the firefighters of Aude.

The young people bathed some 150 m from the beach, according to the same source.
