Swedes in boozy ‘don’t drink and dive’ video

A Swedish synchronized swimming team have performed their world champion routine while drunk – to highlight the dangers of drinking and diving during the summer months, The Local reports.

Last year saw 137 Swedes die from drowning, including 116 men, 21 women and five children, according to the Swedish Life Saving Society (SLS). Six out of ten had been drinking alcohol.

The Stockholm Men’s Synchronized Swimming Team have now joined forces with Swedish insurance company Trygg-Hansa and SLS to highlight the dangers of bathing under the influence of alcohol for the so-called “Don’t Drink And Dive” campaign.
