A 35-year-old Bulgarian farm worker remained missing on Monday afternoon after being swept away by floodwaters earlier in the day in Serres prefecture.

The man, along with his employers, a local father and son, apparently attempted to cross the flood-swollen waters of the Strymonas River of northeastern Greece.

All three were swept up by the strong river tide, with only the father and son managing cling to tree branches, before being rescued by nearby fishermen.
