An elderly Japanese tourist died near the walls of the Moscow Kremlin on Sunday, July 11, Interfax reports with reference to law-enforcement agencies of the Russian capital.
The 75-year-old man, who came to Moscow from Japan, did not feel well when touring the Moscow Kremlin.
"The man collapsed and died near the Borovitsky Gate. He died as a result of heart failure, which could have occurred because of sweltering heat in Moscow," an official said.
The anomalous heat in Moscow has lead to the growing number of lethal incidents at water reservoirs, Interfax said.
"This weekend set a new record on the number of those who drowned in Moscow water reservoirs. Six people drowned on Friday, four on Saturday and five on Sunday. Muscovites invade water reservoirs in hot weather, but many people ignore primitive safety rules. Three individuals of the above-mentioned list went swimming in a state of alcoholic intoxication and drowned. Most of the victims are males," officials said.
In total, 74 people have drowned in Moscow since the opening of the beach season on June 1. This is twice as much as compared with the previous year - 32.
