An incident happened this morning when a 60-year-old resident of Skaloti in Sfakia had gone to his field with olives in a mountainous area.

A wrong move has resulted in injuries and he was not even able to move him self as he has reportedly suffered a fracture in his leg in two points.

Due to the mountainous location of the olive grove, the ambulance had no possibility of going to the place where the man is.

Thus, the Fire Department of Anopoli was called to intervene, whose rescuers went to the location to take the wounded man on a stretcher and carried him on the stretcher and walked a distance of at least 1 kilometer to reach a point where the ambulance had access to, to pick up the injured.
