Tragedy: A 21-year-old girl who was hit by a car in Thessaloniki has died. Family donates her organs

A young student from Thessaloniki, who was left to die on the road after being run over by a driver, has died at Papageorgiou Hospital.

Despite the incredible efforts of the doctors in the fight for her life, the patient did not come to her senses. Doctors pronounced him dead in the intensive care unit of the hospital.

The family made a difficult decision: they donated their daughter’s organs to needy patients. The words of the mother of the student are quoted by “Emmanuela has been a miracle child since her birth, and now that she is gone, she can perform another miracle, give others the life … the one that was taken from her.” The funeral is expected to take place in Chania, where family and friends will say goodbye to the girl who passed away so unfairly and prematurely.

Chronicle of events

At 1:20 am on Tuesday (11/22), a speeding car driver hit her and left her bleeding in the middle of the road in the center of Thessaloniki.

As previously reported, the ΑΠΘ veterinary student was in Chania, her homeland, with her loved ones on Monday evening. And flew the last flight to Thessaloniki. Shortly after 1 a.m., the girl was crossing Egnatia Street on her way to her friends house when she was suddenly hit by a car driven by a 26-year-old Albanian.

The driver not only dragged the girl a few meters along the road, but, as witnesses describe, he tried to leave the scene, reversed and again ran into her victim of an accident.

The townspeople who witnessed the terrible incident tried in vain to stop the criminal, but he “gave the gas” and disappeared into the dark alleys. According to Greek law enforcement agencies, a few hours later the driver himself surrendered to the authorities and was arrested. “Rider” made a confession that it was he who hit him.
