A second man has died after getting into difficulty swimming in a stretch of water called Lulle Brook, between Odney Lane and Mill Lane, Cookham on Tuesday.

Emergency services were called at around 7pm that day after a member of the public pulled a man in his thirties from the water and he was taken to hospital.

Sadly, the man, 37, from Hounslow, has since died. His next of kin have been informed and are being supported.

His death is being treated as unexplained and not suspicious, and a file will be prepared for the coroner.

The body of Syrian refugee Eyad Al Ryabi, a father of five, was recovered from the river on Wednesday after trying to save his friend - the man who has now sadly died in hospital.

Investigating officer, Detective Inspector Ash Mohmood, based at Maidenhead police station said: “Our thoughts are with the man’s family at this very difficult time.

“The men were of a Syrian background and I know this will affect the Syrian community greatly, our thoughts are with you also.

“I would again like to reiterate our thanks to the members of the public alongside Berkshire and Buckinghamshire Fire and Rescue Services, South Central Ambulance Service, and Berkshire Lowland Search and Rescue who assisted our officers.”
