Policeman dies after driving into Stockholm lake
A police officer deployed to guard the state visit from Turkey has died, after driving his quad bike into the frozen lake off central Stockholm, reports news agency TT.
Swedish Television reports that the officer put his bike in the wrong gear and drove straight over the quayside into the Riddarfjärden stretch of lake, off the western Kungsholmen island.
The officer fell through the frozen ice with his quad bike (ATV) falling on top of him. Another officer, together with several skiers, was able to rescue the man from the water. He was taken to Solna's Karolinska hospital with serious injuries, but died on Monday evening.
