The search for the two police officers and the Slovakian student who were swept away by waves off the Orzán beach in the early hours of Sunday morning has been intensified, in a desperate bid to find either the bodies or survivors before the forecase bad weather moves in tomorrow.
Over a hundred people are still working on one of the biggest rescue operations ever mounted in A Coruña, but as yet there has been no sign of the two police officers Rodrigo Maseda and José Antonio Villamor, or of the Slovakian student Tomas Velicky.
Peter Velicky, the student's father, is due to arrive in Spain any time now and will be heading straight to A Coruña.
The search has been ongoing all day, with the boats, helicopters and land-based teams that worked all weekend, plus two Maritime Rescue seaplanes and expert divers from the Club del Mar joining the operation today.
A notable deterioration in weather conditions is expected from tomorrow, so decisions about the rescue operation will depend on the evolution of the weather and sea conditions in the areas still to be searched.
