Three children died in Baiculesti hydropower plant evacuation canal

Three boys, ages 11-12 from the Arges County commune of Baiculesti died on Friday after they fell into an evacuation canal of the local hydroelectric plant. They were pulled out of the water by fire fighters, yet died despite emergency doctors’ efforts to bring them back to life. Mayor Gheorghe Baranescu, who is also the local priest, blamed the accident on the “playing and recklessness of the little ones”, as the second and third one jumped into the water to save the first, and first two respectively.
