He was transferred to the Tzaneio Hospital where it was found he had been drinking. In a detailed announcement about the incident, the Coast Guard said it did not cause marine pollution.

The vehicle was recovered from the sea later in the day. A preliminary investigation has been launched by the central Port Authority of Piraeus.
