There has been an outpouring of sadness and shock following the tragic deaths of two men in two separate tragedies over the weekend.
Kringvarp Føroya (Kvf.fo) reports that police were notified around 10 a.m. yesterday that a 47-year-old man had been found dead on the beach between Kambsdalur and Fuglafjørður on the island of Eysturoy.
The man had been reported missing since Saturday, and the police still do not know how he fell into the sea.
Around 2.p.m yesterday, police were notified of another tragic incident – this time on the island of Fugloy in the northeast region of the Faroe Islands.
A 60-year-old man fell into the sea while boarding Ritan, the ferry that connects Fugloy to the Faroese mainland, and despite being pulled from the ocean, he could not be revived and was pronounced dead shortly after on the Atlantic Airways rescue helicopter which had flown to the island of Svínoy to pick him up, writes Kvf.fo.
