Skier killed in accident in northern Greece


A 22-year-old man died in the early hours of Thursday from injuries sustained in a skiing accident, the ANA-MPA news agency has reported.

The young man was on a late-night skiing excursion with friends at Tria-Pente Pigadia in Naoussa, northern Greece, when he apparently lost control and smashed into a tree at great speed during a downhill run.

He was rushed to the local general hospital but died of his injuries, the ANA-MPA reported.

The 22-year-old was later identified as Akis Psomiadis, a handball player with the Filippos Veria sports club.
