On Saturday alone, six drowning deaths were reported nationwide as people took to lakes, rivers and the Baltic Sea amid scorching weather, the Government Centre for Security (RCB) reported.

On Sunday, two more people drowned, according to police data.

Officials say alcohol is among the main causes of swimmers drowning in Poland. Deaths often occur in bathing areas not patrolled by lifeguards.

The Government Centre for Security has warned people that they should not drink or take drugs before going swimming. It also appealed to citizens to steer clear of unguarded beaches and to wear a life jacket when on a boat or canoe.
