Three bodies recovered from lake

The bodies of three youths have been recovered from Ullswater in the Lake District, police said.

The three, aged 15, 17 and 21 and from the West Midlands, were among a group enjoying a swim when one of them got out of their depth.

Another 15-year-old boy had to be pulled to safety during the incident at about 1600 BST on Saturday.

Police said conditions were reasonably calm, but there were deep areas and the water was very cold.

They said they were contacting the families of those who died before releasing any more information.

A Cumbria Police spokesman said: "Police have now recovered the three bodies of the males who went missing in Ullswater lake.

"We are in the process of contacting the deceased males' families and updating them regarding the circumstances of the drowning.

"No details will be released until all family members have been informed regarding this tragic incident."

'Extremely cold'

Members of the public and a lake warden went to help when the alarm was raised, and managed to rescue the 15-year-old boy.

He was taken to hospital, where his injuries were not thought to be life-threatening.

Searches by the coastguard, a helicopter and police and civilian divers were carried out overnight.

Police said the boys were part of a group staying in Glenridding, a village overlooking Ullswater.

Insp Sean Murphy, from Cumbria Police, said: "I think the lake was reasonably calm.

"Unfortunately it does have deep areas and shelving and the water is extremely cold so it's all speculation at the moment but I am assuming that someone has gone too deep and they have got cold and been unable to swim."

ਜਾ ਕੈ ਸਿਮਰਣਿ ਜਮ ਤੇ ਛੁਟੀਐ ਹਲਤਿ ਪਲਤਿ ਸੁਖੁ ਪਾਈਐ ॥

jaa kai simran jam tay chhutee-ai halat palat sukh paa-ee-ai.

Meditating in remembrance on Him, we escape from the Messenger of Death; here and hereafter, we obtain peace.

ਸਾਸਿ ਗਿਰਾਸਿ ਜਪਹੁ ਜਪੁ ਰਸਨਾ ਨੀਤ ਨੀਤ ਗੁਣ ਗਾਈਐ ॥੨॥

saas giraas japahu jap rasnaa neet neet gun gaa-ee-ai.

With every breath and morsel of food, meditate, and chant with your tongue, continually, each and every day; sing the Glorious Praises of the Lord.

i knew 1 ov the singhs pretty well, i used to see him all the tym on his paper round, he always stopped to say fateh to me. i remember seeing him around the gurdwara as a young kid, he grew up to be a fine young man. a real loss to the panth. i mentioned wat happened to him and the other young gursikhs to a few other singhs that knew him, some of them said how they just played football with him on tuesday. 1 ov my mates sed he was a proper sikkkk football player man, seriously good. we just looked at each other and smiled, remembering how he used to dazzle us with his skills. may waheguru help there families through this difficult tym.

    • I think only the south part of Goa is christian. I have been to Goa, there are a lot of churches that sitting on old Hindu temples. There are also Hindu temples in Portuguese style but there are older structures of older temples. Goa also had their own inquisitions.
    • The elections were all fraud as well.  My mother has many Christian friends from goa who hate modi and bjp. And they were saying that bjp even won in the areas with strong Christian populations which is impossible.  VID-20190525-WA0005.mp4
    • I agree I think these people are payed. Social media is way more influential than books, tv or radio so they have now moved onto the internet.  There are countless sites like these. There's a Twitter page called indology which had countless tweets on how the gurus worshiped devis etc And then you have people like that nihang nidar man with his books and sanatan sikhi websites.  You have parcharks like that trilochan with his red tilak and guru ma anandmurti with their blend of sikh and hindu speeches.   Believe it or not but many aunties actually like listening to these fake babe that mix sikhi with hindu stuff. 
    • They are paid to do it. Like I said, it's not random weirdos trolling in their spare time for kicks. For years I baulked at the idea of it, thinking it sounded too much like a dodgy conspiracy theory, but having read up on the way information is weaponised in this information and digital age, it's clear that there's an official apparatus to these operations. Due to these activities being relatively new as technology has progressed over the past few decades, it makes sense that controlling the flow and content of information on the apparently "lawless" internet is arguably more important to nation states and certain powerful factions than similar social and ideological engineering executed on television, radio, and other legacy forms of entertainment.
    • These people are very active on social media as Well, I remember a few on YouTube, they used to write comments on nearly every sikh video, insulting sikhi and questioning. Same questions and insults copied and pasted on every video.
