Emotional Farewell to the Hero-Volunteer Firefighter Who Fell in the Line of Duty

Vassilis Filoras

Vassilis Filoras, a father of two, was the first to lose his life in the devastating fire in Attica while fighting as a volunteer firefighter.

He breathed his last at KAT Hospital on Friday, where he was taken in a critical condition after he suffered suffering an electric shock when a bare PPC cable fell on his head.

His funeral will be held on Tuesday, August 10 at 2:30 pm at the Church of Saints Constantine and Helen in Ano Liossia.

The brave hero's loved ones said goodbye to him with these words:

“They said you can’t choose when or how you die. But you can choose how you live. Our friend, partner, husband and father of two, Vassilis Filoras, lived every day with a smile, kindness and selfless love. The thread of his life ended unjustly on 6/8/2021."
