Immigrant boy dies of suffocation in Patras

Posted by clandestina on 3 January 2012

Τhree  Afghani youngsters (between 15-20 years old), who had recently arrived in the port city of Patras, were temporarily sleeping in the cabin of an abandoned truck in the old redundant textile factory of Peiraiki Patraiki. In order to keep warm yesterday during the cold night (Monday, January 2), they lit a fire in a small vessel. There was no window or door open in the road tractor, and the lack of oxygen caused the suffocation to death of one of the boys. The other two were taken to hospital in a critical condition.
