About the shocking incident with the fall of two girls in a 40-meter-deep hole in Lakatamia, Fire Brigade Press Officer Andreas Kettis spoke on the SIGMA program "Protoselido".
As he mentioned, the Fire Department a few days before the incident had issued an announcement regarding open wells and perforations, after dozens of calls mainly about animals falling into them.
We were afraid that the worst would come and the calls were repeated. us, and yesterday we saw what we were warning about, he added.
He emphasized that the girls, aged 9.5 and 11.5 years, really had Agios and were saved.
As he said, while the two sisters were playing in the yard of a house, they stepped on a makeshift drilling cover and ended up 40 meters deep inside it.
For two hours they called for help, but it was impossible for anyone to hear them.
Then the 9.5-year-old girl climbed into the drill pipe, came to the surface and called her father who informed the Fire Department, members of which rescued her 11.5-year-old sister who was taken to the hospital without being seriously injured.< /p>
He noted that luckily for the minors at the bottom of the hole there was a stone on which they stepped and so their heads were above the level of the water and they were breathing, while otherwise he said, it was very likely that there would have been drowning .
«Everything agreed to be saved, but we will not be so lucky every time», concluded Mr. Kettis.
