A photo of a desperate father who decided to carry his child in his arms was published by the police department ΕΛ.ΑΣ.
Law enforcement agencies have reported one of many shocking cases of citizens stuck in a traffic jam on Attiki Odos. The report tells of the family’s misadventure – a father and daughter trapped on the Imittos ring road and how they were rescued by the police.
“At midnight (00:30) on January 25, the OPKE began to rescue people trapped (trapped in a traffic jam) in the Imittos area. Priority was given to rescuing a little girl whose father said that they had been walking in the snow for several hours, and that the girl needed to go to the hospital in the morning for an operation. So they walked several kilometers with a first aid kit, as the car was blocked on the roadway. The police found the father carrying his daughter on his back walking towards Dukissis Plakentias. Law enforcement officers picked them up and delivered them safely to their address. The same OPKE brigade located a military doctor who, due to health problems, felt unwell and needed emergency care. The man was taken to the 401st military hospital, where he is currently undergoing treatment. The OPKE rescue group provided citizens in need with their personal supplies of water and food.”
