CNN Turk emphasizes that the injured migrant was taken to the Uzunkioporos hospital by the medical teams that went to the scene. His state of health was grave, and despite the efforts of doctors, he died. An investigation into the incident has been launched, according to a Turkish news agency.
The Turkish media have already picked up on the news and are creating an atmosphere of tension without having more information than CNN Turk reports. At the same time, according to Newsbeast, the Greek police categorically deny the existence of such an incident.
Immediately after the news was posted in the Turkish media, an investigation was conducted, during which it turned out that there was not the slightest mention of the above incident.
