Two slightly injured as fire truck overturns during exercise

Two firefighters have been hospitalised as a precaution after their vehicle overturned on Friday evening during an exercise at Larnaca airport.

The fire service said the incident took place at around 8.15pm. The water tanker truck had been taking part in a practise crash which is designed to test response times to incidents at any part of the runways.

At some point during the scramble, the tanker took a right turn and overturned, slightly injuring the two-person crew.

The firefighters were rushed to Larnaca general hospital where they were examined and admitted as a precaution.
