The tragedy that was feared from Saturday afternoon unfortunately came true. After three days of ceaseless research by divers in Lake Como, today the body of Florijana Ismaili, the 24-year-old Swiss soccer player, was found dead at a depth of 204 meters.

A player of the Swiss national team and of the Young Boys, Florijana Ismaili disappeared Saturday afternoon during a boat trip on Lake Como with a friend. After having dived into the water, she was not resurfaced anymore: the same friend had given the alarm and then the search for the girl started.

"I thought of a joke£, the friend who was with her on the boat that damned afternoon told the Swiss newspaper, Blick - "I thought she did it to scare me and would re-emerge from the other side of the boat. I shouted her name, to no avail”.
