Young Syrian refugee hospitalised after shock on power pillar at the hotspot of Moria

A teenage Syrian refugee was hospitalised on Lesvos on Tuesday after being shocked by electricity when he climbed a pillar to protest a migration decision.

According to sources, the 19-year-old was informed in the afternoon that his family would be transferred to Athens to complete their asylum application, while he would have to remain at the hotspot of Moria.

The young man climbed the pillar in protest, and when he inadvertently touched the transformer he was shocked by the current and thrown into a nearby stream. According to information, he is in the Mytilini hospital and out of danger.
