Tragic update this morning from Poros (photos & video)

The coastguard, police and civil protection, fire brigade and EKAB were all at the port this morning and two divers entered the water, shortly after 10:00 am they located the car that had crashed off the old pier yesterday evening in atrocious weather conditions.

The car was lifted out later in the morning and unfortunately the body of a woman was retrieved form the car and transported via EKAB to Argostoli hospital.

The woman is not from Kefalonia or Greek, described as middle age and foreign and her car held several suit cases. (update now confirmed as a 67 year old American who lived in Greece).

Working is ongoing by the divers to ensure a second person was not in the vehicle when it entered the water.

The working hypothesise at present is, she become confused in the bad weather conditions last night with waves blowing onto shore, dark winter evening, poor signage and drove up the old jetty and unfortunately into the sea immediately after getting off the evening ferry.
