A man is in mortal danger after drowning in the water amusement park Plopsaqua in Hannut, just across the border with Landen in Flemish Brabant. The public prosecutor of Liège reported this on Monday, which could not specify whether the incident happened on Sunday or Monday.
It was on arrival at the wild river catchment basin of Plopsaqua that a man in trouble drowned. On surveillance footage, investigators could see the man waving, but no one saw him. Then he disappeared under water. The victim was rescued minutes later. According to the latest information available to the public prosecutor, the man is in mortal danger.

Plopsaqua Hannut-Landen officially opened its doors on 9 June. It is not the first security incident in the 4,800 square meter complex. In early September, a child in the outdoor pool was saved from drowning by a visitor. After the incident, Plopsaqua announced a safety policy review.
