Injured EAC employee dies a month after blast


A 48-year-old electricity company (EAC) employee critically injured in an explosion in May has died, the EAC said on Tuesday.

Kyriacos Argyrou and a colleague, 40, were injured in an explosion at a sub-station while they were carrying out scheduled maintenance.

Both the men’s clothes had caught fire in the May 20 blast.

Due to the severity of their injuries, they were transferred abroad for treatment. The 48-year-old was taken to Athens for treatment at a burns hospital while the 40-year-old was taken to a healthcare facility in Leipzig.
