A MUM and her pal drowned after taking a taxi to a beach for a midnight swim. Mother-of-two Karolina Pisarska, 36, and Luiza Koniuszy, 22, were swept out to sea minutes after wading into the choppy water in Aberdeen. Karoline Pisarska and her pal drowned after taking a taxi to the beach Luiza Koniuszy was swept out to sea alongside mum-of-two Karolina Rescue teams found them face-down and unconscious at around 12.45am. A shocked cabbie watched in horror as the two women drowned in the North Sea minutes after leaving his taxi. It’s understood the friends asked the driver to wait for them as they went for their paddle. The cabbie raised the alarm when they got into trouble after struggling with the waves and cold water. But by the time emergency services got there they’d been dragged out 50 metres, just past the wooden barriers at Aberdeen beach. They were hauled into a lifeboat and taken ashore but it was too late and the pair were declared dead at the city’s Royal Infirmary. Two women dead after major search and rescue operation at Aberdeen beach A friend said: “This doesn’t feel real to anyone. It’s beyond comprehension. “Everyone knows the two of them enjoyed a night out. They loved going out and having fun. [quote]This doesn’t feel real to anyone. It’s beyond comprehension.[/quote] “They were out swimming at the beach a few weeks ago and nothing happened. They didn’t see it as dangerous, just a bit of a laugh. “That’s why they got a taxi to take them back down there. They didn’t think anything could go wrong.” Karolina and Luiza were both originally from Poland but had set up home in Aberdeen. It’s understood they met while students at a local college. Their social media pages show them posing for snaps during regular visits to the beach. Next to one happy snap Luiza said: “Pretending to be a tourist. #polishgirl #beach #sun #brownhair#brunette #sea #seaside #sunny” Cops were trying to get in touch with the women’s relatives in Poland and Scotland today. The insider added: “No one is coping with this very well at all. It just feels so weird and impossible to take in. Chief Inspector Martin Mackay at the scene on an Aberdeen beach “Just a few hours ago Luiza was posting stories on Instagram. How can she not be here any more?” The taxi driver dialled 999 at about 00.45 on Friday morning. Cops, paramedics, firefighters, two lifeboats, Coastguard teams and a search-and-rescue helicopter raced to the beach. The tide was in and there were rough waves. The water temperature would have been just 10°C. [quote]They didn’t think anything could go wrong.[/quote] It’s thought that may have caught the girls by surprise because it was a nice night. There’s a chance they could have gone into shock as soon as they hit the water. Coastguard area commander Ross Greenhill said: “The water temperature is quite unforgiving at this time of year when the air temperature starts to rise. “The cold water takes you by surprise. It’s a warm air temperature, they jump in and suddenly it’s a lot colder. “There were quite substantial waves and the tide was all the way in. It was reasonably rough.” Police comb the beach It’s thought the pair weren’t in the water for long. Mr Greenhill added: “We think the alarm was raised fairly quickly and dealt with quickly.” Lifeboat teams were guided to the women but it’s feared they were dead before they were lifted out of the water. Davie Orr, coxswain of Aberdeen Lifeboat, was one of the first at the scene and helped rescue the women. But he said the incident was hard for him and his team to cope with. [quote credit=”Davie Orr, coxswain of Aberdeen Lifeboat”]It is quite distressing for the crew. The RNLI ethos is to save lives at sea.[/quote] He explained: “It is quite distressing for the crew. The RNLI ethos is to save lives at sea. “When we come back in and that hasn’t been achieved the atmosphere in the lifeboat station isn’t the same.” Police wouldn’t reveal what Karolina and Luiza were wearing but ruled out them going for a skinnydip. It’s understood officers are investigating whether or not they’d been drinking before they headed to the beach. A section of the busy beachfront was cordoned off for most of yesterday while teams continued to probe the incident. Forensic officers scoured the spot for clues and picked up a hairbrush that had been lying untouched. [quote credit=”Chief Inspector Martin Mackay”]I can’t stress enough the dangers of entering the water at any time of the day or night when you are not suitably prepared.[/quote] Chief Inspector Martin Mackay said: “We were alerted by a member of the public who was aware of their circumstances. “Officers continue to investigate the circumstances surrounding why these women came to be in the water so late at night. “At this stage there appear to be no suspicious circumstances. “From our initial enquiries, which include speaking to a witness who was at the scene at the time, we understand they entered the water for the purpose of swimming but, sadly, underestimated the conditions.” He added: “I’d like to thank all the rescue personnel who assisted at the scene and did their very best to save the women involved. “Our seas can be extremely unforgiving, conditions can change rapidly. [article-rail-section title=”Most Read in News” posts_category=”2″ posts_number=”12″ query_type=”popular” /] “I can’t stress enough the dangers of entering the water at any time of the day or night when you are not suitably prepared.” A spokesman for Aberdeen Water Safety Group said: “First and foremost our thoughts are with the families of the two women following this terrible tragedy. “We are obviously deeply saddened at the loss of two young lives and would like to extend our deepest sympathies to friends and families and our gratitude to rescue services who did everything they could to prevent the fatalities.” stuart.patterson@the-sun.co.uk [bc_video video_id=”6027935857001″ account_id=”5067014667001″ player_id=”default” embed=”in-page” padding_top=”56%” autoplay=”” min_width=”0px” max_width=”640px” width=”100%” height=”100%” caption=”Cops seal off Glasgow street after man died following late night fight “] We pay for your stories and videos!

WHEN you’re 12 years old you’re usually thinking about school, homework and friends, but not for Charlie Griffiths. He started a candle business at the age of 12, and two years on it’s making him thousands of pounds a year. Charlie started his business at the age of 12 Charlie’s company – Hood + May – now also sells homeware, children’s clothing and diffusers, but it all started with candles. “I’ve always been interested in starting my own business,” Charlie, from Herefordshire, told The Mirror. “I decided on candles after I read about all the nasty things that go into making many of them and wanted to make some that were eco friendly,” he said. A company makes the candles for him, but Charlie designs them himself and makes sure they contain sustainable ingredients and are free from additives. He designs his own candles to make sure they’re eco-friendly The candles cost between £9 and £12 depending on the smell and packaging. He also designs or hand picks the other products for his business from trade shows, which includes diffusers for £8 and clothing for children from £4.99. The business currently sells about 250 products a year, giving it an annual turnover of roughly £10,000, Charlie told The Sun. ‘I run the business in my spare time’ Of course, running a business on top of schoolwork can be hectic, so he doesn’t have much spare time. “I get home from school and do my homework first – and any spare time I dedicate to the business,” Charlie said. This includes dealing with customer enquiries and suppliers, visiting trade shows as well as packaging goods to send out.

His parents are also supportive and help him when he needs to travel to trade shows. But as with any start-ups, his business journey hasn’t come without problems. “It’s mostly been good fun.
