Three people drowned in two hours on Saturday on beaches around Israel.
A 45-year-old man was evacuated from an unofficial beach near Zikhron Ya'akov in northern Israel, and was later pronounced dead.
An hour later, a 20-year-old was found unconscious at an Eilat beach. Magen David Adom attempted to resuscitate him, but were forced to pronounce him dead.
Later, a 50-year-old was declared dead after drowning at an Akko (Acre) beach.
Another man, 53, nearly drowned at a Nahariya beach. Magen David Adom paramedics transferred him to the city's Galilee Medical Center, in light condition and fully conscious.
