Three fishermen die off Ermioni in boat accident

Three fishermen died off the coast of Ermioni in the eastern Peloponnese on Tuesday morning after their boat capsized.

The two Egyptians aged 32 and 55, and a 56-year-old Greek, were part of a crew of five. The other two fishermen were rescued by colleagues working nearby and have been taken to a local medical center for tests.

Port authorities in Ermioni are investigating the cause of the accident amid what other fishermen said were calm conditions.
