A fire brigade that was at the scene of the incident, took out the bodies of the children to be picked up by EKAB. One child was pulled out dead while the other was initially reported to have regained consciousness and was fighting to stay alive. It finally came to an end. They are a boy and a girl, high school students.

Local authorities said the incident occurred immediately after the 6.7 magnitude earthquake. The children were heading specifically to the beach and passed through a narrow alley in the area of ​​Gefyraki, on Kanari Street, when the wall of a building fell. “The point was so narrow and they probably could not be protected,” said a man involved in the rescue operation.
