WILDFIRES disaster in Greece...one word only...pain...

Watch and read the worst disaster in the country from the WWII

91 people died, many families lost at the biggest disaster in the country in the last 50 years

Well, i became a LL member couple of years ago, so i've watched here many many bad situations, disasters, deaths etc...this is for sure one of the top...if not the worst one...
It's difficult to realise for someone who is not living here the amount of the disaster that "found" Greece before a week where 91 people died (many children among the victims) and whole families lost for ever... from last Monday, the country has a huge pain...

So...here is the story...
A fire begun at the mountain and due to really extremely strong wings it started to spread around like hell...the problem is that the fire was moving to a village (outside Athens) where many many people were there at their houses or swimming (it was around 17:00 when the fire started).

This guy here, record the fire (https://www.facebook.com/pkokkinidis/videos/1021664057835493) at the beginning...riding his motorbike, he was there with his wife...after that, the 3 min facebook live, he went at the village to take his 2 children and his mother to save them... all died...

Due to wings the fire approached very quickly the populated area, coming from the mountain so when people realised that they had to protect theirselves or leave the area they started to either run to their cars or go to their home to warn their relatives. At the same time, at an avenue that was separating the mountain with the village, police prohibited the traffic and some says that they started to redirect the cars from the avenue to the village.



You can watch this video to understand what was happening at this time (when the fire approached the first houses in the village) : https://www.liveleak.com/view?t=CrYtP_1532689639
And this where a father KNEW what to do, locked the kids at the bathroom, and he finally saved his life and his family life : https://www.facebook.com/www.in.gr/videos/10156692807540962/

Let me note here that the village was a seaside village with many many trees (almost like a forest) and it has really narrow streets (with difficulty pass 2 cars at the streets). So people from the village were trying to escape to the avenue and others were coming from there...at the same time and only 1 hour after the fire begun, the fire was approaching with tremendous speeds...

Check this video to see the area :


People realised that they don't have hope with the cars, so they started to leave their cars and run to the sea with their fire really meters behind them...Hmm problems ended? NO....FUCKING NO... the fucking place doesn't have a beach... it has high cliffs with very few access areas (stairs) to go to the beach... so many trapped to the cliffs without knowing where exactly to go (a girl jumped from the cliffs and killed while her clothes were blazed).

The other issue was that a lot of people, trying to save their lives, went in the sea as the atmosphere was too hot and full of smoke...at the same 50-100m from the beach there was big waves (some drowned..).

To my life, i've never NEVER watched a worst situation to be... and it was only some kms from our homes, the capital of Greece...

At the video below you will see the people who did it, they arrived at rocks waiting for rescue... a tragedy...



Well... none resigned yet...NONE...at this fucking country that we live...

PS. This happened on Monday... what should happen if it was Sunday where thousand people go there?...Can't even imagine...

PS2. 26 people found dead at the edge of a cliff...most of the found hugging each other...
