  • [01] Rescue operation for toddler who fell into irrigation ditch

    A rescue operation was still underway Thursday morning for a 4-year-old Roma boy who fell into an irrigation ditch sluice in the Roma camp in Mavrikas, Karditsa prefecture, the previous night.

    The boy fell into the sluice at 9:00 Wednesday night, and was carried away by swift-moving 2-meter-deep waters.

    The Fire Brigade and EMAK emergency rescue teams immediately rushed to the scene.

    The process of terminating water supply to the irrigation ditch has already commenced, but some eight hours are required for the process.
