Woman, 20, drowns in lake 'trying to save brother & sister' after they were swept away as dad watched in horror in Italy | The Sun

A WOMAN drowned while trying to save her teenage brother from the water at a holiday hotspot.

The 20-year-old's brother, 14, and sister, 17, were swept away by the current in Lake Garda, Italy, as their horrified dad watched on.

They were washed more than 30m away from the shore in Corno and the woman, named locally as Anna Lorenzi, jumped in to save them.

But as she battled to bring her siblings to safety, she was pulled under the waves.

Two boys frantically dived into the water and rescued her brother and sister.

Anna, however, could not be saved and died at the scene on Saturday, reports ANSA.
