Marne : deux militaires meurent noyés lors d'un exercice

Ce sont dix embarcations de type canoë rigide, essentiellement des bi-places qui naviguaient sur la Marne.

C'est lors d'un exercice, vendredi 19 mai, que deux militaires sont morts noyés lors d'un exercice dans la Marne, a-t-on appris auprès du commandement de la zone de Défense Est.

"Ces deux légionnaires étaient, l'un célibataire déclaré, l'autre père d'un jeune enfant", a précisé l'armée de terre. Une bonne trentaine d'entre eux, dont des plongeurs, ont été acheminés sur place.

Pas le premier accident du genre.

D'après le parquet de Reims, une vingtaine d'hommes composant une section d'une compagnie du 2e régiment d'infanterie de la Légion étrangère basée à Nîmes (Gard) et en manoeuvre sur le département de la Marne, procédait à une activité dite de cohésion.

Cumières sur la Marne où les deux légionnaires se sont noyés ce matin.

D'après José Tranchant, maire de Cumières, interrogé par l'AFP, "les hommes remontaient le courant et puis, au lieu de faire demi-tour avant le barrage, ils ont été un peu trop près du barrage je pense".

Selon Le Parisien, un des deux militaires serait tombé à l'eau dans des circonstances qui restent à éclaircir et ne serait jamais remonté à la surface.

Toutefois, des autopsies vont être pratiquées pour déterminer les causes exactes de cet accident mortel. Et comme il y a des tourbillons. Le commandement de la zone Est a indiqué qu'une enquête était " en cours ", affirmant n'avoir pas d'autres détails dans l'immédiat. "Nous, on est du village, on sait très bien qu'il ne faut pas y aller, c'est dangereux".
