Old Bridge in Mostar illuminated to remember Eight Young People

Yesterday was the Day of Mourning for the whole of Bosnia and Herzegovina due to the tragically interrupted eight young lives. The old bridge in Mostar was lit yesterday night in memory of these young people.

Eight young people died as a result of gas suffocation in the village of Tribistovo in the municipality of Posusje, according to the police. The tragedy happened while young people from Rakitna and Posusje were waiting for the New Year. An investigation is underway.

Unofficially, four girls and four boys died. 

“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

According to unofficial allegations, the young people most likely suffocated because of the gas from the generator that supplied the house with electricity.
