“Unfortunately, five adults drowned after bathing in Tuul river to cool off during a heat wave over the weekend,’’ the NPA said in a statement.

“The number of the people who want to stay on river banks and cool off has been increasing due to high temperature across the country in recent days,’’ the agency said.

“There have been around 20 deaths by drowning in the country so far this year.’’

The NPA said that drowning is preventable, urging people to avoid swimming alone or staying near rivers after drinking alcohol.
