How were the brothers and sisters of Sulmierzyce lost?
The tragedy in Darłówko took place on August 14th. The unfortunate day of the marriage with Sulmierzyce was by the sea with four children – the 14-year-old Kacper, the 13-year-old Kamil and the 11-year-old Zuzia and the 2-year-old Adasa. It was windy on the Baltic Sea, the waves were very high and there was a total ban on swimming. Nevertheless, three older children entered the water. Their mother – Mrs Anna went to the toilet with the youngest son. When she returned, she realized that the older three were nowhere to be found.
A dozen minutes later, the body of the 14-year-old Kacper was pulled out. The teenager died in the hospital in Koszalin. The body of his sister Zuzia was found three days later at the entrance of the harbor, and four days after the Baltic Sea incident on the east side of Darłówka, the body of the other boy, Kamil, was fished out.
