We cannot comment on this.  We translate this Athens Indymedia article.  



A supermarket employee died a terrible death yesterday morning in the area of Vouliagmeni, Athens.  He got stuck in the elevator of the supermarket. 

The incident occurred at 10:30 yesterday morning at the supermarket on 16, Thiseos Str.. 

The 45 year old Albanian worker had been loading things in the elevator of the store, when under unspecified conditions the elevator doors closed.  He got trapped between them. 

Employees and customers of the store heard the voices of the unfortunate worker and rushed to help.  However, it was already too late. 

The 45 year old was transferred to hospital, where his death was confirmed. 

The process of police preliminary work to ascertain the causes of the accident is already on.
