A star and several tourists die in the heat in Greece

Hard to believe when you see the weather in much of France. But in Greece, the heatwave continues to rage. And it’s a safe bet that the overwhelming heat wave caused one or more victims. On Sunday, the body of a 55-year-old American tourist was discovered on the island of Corfu. In one week, three foreign tourists were found dead and searches are still underway for three other foreign tourists on other Greek islands, according to local media. Most of them had gone hiking in the sweltering heat.

British TV star found dead

According to Athens News Agency, the fifty-year-old American was on vacation in Mathraki. He was last seen by locals at a cafe last Tuesday. This is the latest discovery of the body of a foreign tourist, after that of British television star doctor Michael Mosley, found dead on June 9 on the Greek island of Symi in the Aegean Sea and then that of a tourist on Saturday Dutch on the island of Samos. Michael Mosley had taken a walk on the coast, in the heat of the day.

Two French women are also missing on the island of Sikinos and another tourist on the island of Amorgos. Aged 73 and 64, they had left their respective hotels to meet, according to local media.

A very (too) early wave

The body of a 74-year-old Dutch tourist was spotted on Saturday morning on the island of Samos by a fire brigade drone, lying in a ravine a few hundred meters from where he was last seen on Sunday last, walking with difficulty.

According to meteorologists, Greece experienced the heatwave lasting at least three days – which for Greece means temperatures exceeding 38 degrees – the earliest on record.
