“Eight young people between the ages of 18 and 19 were killed,” confirmed Milan Galic on behalf of the Ministry of the Interior. 

“There were also younger people waiting for the New Year in the neighboring cottage. They were the first to notice that no one came out of the cottage nearby. After that they tried to enter the cottage, but the door was locked. One of them entered, and on the ground floor, he found eight people unconscious, after which he called the police “, said Galic, reports Dnevnik.hr

Young people most likely suffocated because of the gas from the generator that supplied the house with electricity.

As a reminder, the tragedy happened while the young people were waiting for the New Year.
