A body that was pulled out of the sea off Haifa's shore was identified as 52-year-old Alexander Meshar, who went missing at sea off the Netanya coast on Friday, Israel Radio reported on Sunday afternoon. A local fisherman spotted the body on Sunday morning. Meshar apparently drowned while trying to save his brother Nikolai, who nearly drowned and was pulled from the sea in serious condition on Friday. Nikolai Meshar, who was visiting in Israel from Belarus in order to attend his niece's wedding, succumbed to his injuries several hours later at Netanya's Laniado Hospital.
