Divers recover woman’s body from French lake

Police divers recovered on Thursday the body of a 20-year-old South Korean woman who went missing on a French lake earlier this week, emergency services said.

The woman, whose name was not given, disappeared after jumping from a pedal boat into Saint-Cassien lake in the south eastern Var region on Sunday.

Her family, accompanied by South Korean embassy staff, identified the body after it was recovered from the bottom of the lake at about 6:00 pm (1600 GMT).

Police in Fayence have opened an inquiry into the circumstances of the death under the authority of local prosecutors.
