Greek church worker saved in Istanbul after falling down 30-meter well
Firefighters in Istanbul rushed to the scene when a Greek woman working at the Hagia Nicola Greek Orthodox Church fell down a 30-meter-deep well.
The woman, who was cleaning when she stepped on the lid of the well and fell down, was saved after half-an-hour of efforts, Doğan News Agency reported.
Tina Tinodinos’s husband Kostas also stood by the firefighting crew in tears as they meticulously worked to help save the woman who screamed “I’m falling down” in Greek as she went down the well.
Tinodinos received first aid on the spot first, and was then taken to the hospital in an ambulance for further treatment, the agency reported.
A firefighter who was left without oxygen during the rescue efforts also received treatment.
