Demining accident resulted in fatality


Today, around 8,45 am, in the area of Sabljak Modruški in the municipality of Josipdol, there was a mine incident while performing humanitarian demining in which two deminers, employees of the company DETEKTOR d.o.o. Vukovar, were injured.
Karlovac PD has informed that both of the injured deminers were transported to the medical institution where they received medical treatment, but sadly, deminer I.J. (26) from Lipovac passed away from the consequences of wounding. The deminer D. S. (37) from Tenja is stable and his life is not in danger.

It is difficult to accept the heartbreaking news about the injuries and death of the deminers.

The director and staff of the CROMAC express genuine sympathy to the family of the deceased deminer.
