The tragedy took place on Wednesday, October 28. It is already known that three children went on a boat trip to try out an extreme attraction - parasailing. However, the cable connecting the parachute and the boat broke off.
Young British tourists were carried away and thrown onto the rocks of the island. Two teenagers - a 15-year-old boy and a 13-year-old girl - died on the spot, having received injuries incompatible with life. The third teenager, a 15-year-old boy, received numerous injuries, but survived and is now in the hospital.
The Greek police opened a criminal investigation into the death of children. Two people are detained - employees of the company who provided parasailing services to tourists from the UK.
