The fire brigade said Wednesday they rescued a person who fell into a septic tank the previous day, while they also responded to 56 other calls in a 24-hour period.

Between 6am on Tuesday and 6.30am on Wednesday, the service responded to 28 calls for help, 14 calls concerning fires, ten for special services and four fake calls.

The service rescued a person who fell into a 12-metre-deep septic tank at a rural home near Ayios Nicolaos church in Chrysospiliotissa street in Kato Deftera village, Nicosia. The lid of the tank had collapsed, and the person fell into raw sewage. Police and the Lakatamia fire brigade used a rescue vehicle and the Arizona Vortex (AZV) rescue gear to retrieve them from the pit.

The person received first aid and an ambulance took them to the A&E of Nicosia general hospital.
