Three Lives Claimed by Cold in Romania

Three people have so far died because of the sudden cold temperatures that hit Romania earlier than expected. An old man in Bucharest died in the street, after having been exposed to cold rain and wind. Hundreds of people saw him agonize, yet nobody thought of giving the dying man the help that might have saved him, reports Pro TV.

Another man, in Iaşi, suffered the same fate. Medics and ambulance doctors resuscitated him 11 times, but his heart stopped for the 12th time and there was nothing anyone could do.

Authorities expect more people to lose their lives in Romania because of the cold. Three out of Bucharest’s six sectors do not have any shelters for the homeless. And the existing shelters only open after temperatures drop below zero Celsius for three nights in a row.
