Climber died in Agia Roumeli

A climber died in Agia Roumeli late in the afternoon.

11 firemen from Chania and Heraklion set up a rescue operation earlier in the afternoon, because it was extremely difficult to reach the area.

They arrived from the sea by the inflatable boat of the Municipality of Sfakia and one of them managed to reach the climber an hour later.

The climber was hanging with ropes from a dangerous cliff.

The rescue operation completed shortly after 8 p.m.

A forensic examination will show the exact causes of his death (due to an accident or pathological causes).
