A 33-year-old fire­fighter re­mained in the in­ten­sive care unit of a mil­i­tary hos­pi­tal yes­ter­day after un­der­go­ing surgery to re­pair a col­lapsed lung that he suf­fered fol­low­ing an ac­ci­dent dur­ing a fire ex­tin­guish­ing ef­fort in the area of Zev­go­la­tio, Corinthia, on Thursday. The fire­fighter and another three peo­ple were hurt when a trac­tor, which they had boarded in a bid to get closer to the blaze, over­turned while in mo­tion and fell on top of them. The fire­fighter’s three col­leagues and the farmer driv­ing the trac­tor sus­tained less se­ri­ous in­juries. Medics in­di­cated yes­ter­day that they were mon­i­tor­ing the 33-year-old closely and that the week­end would be crit­i­cal.
