The 20-year-old student studying commercial engineering, Michalis Klapsis from Leipsoi, speaking on T. Stefanidou’s “T-Live” show today, attributed to Saint Luke of Simferopol the Physician and to his icon of him that he always has with him his salvation in the carnage in Tempi, but also that he was found worthy to help and save his fellow human beings, among them a baby.

“Everything I did I did thanks to him,” he declared “... the strength I got to do all this, I believe my patron Saint Luke the Physician gave me because I always carry his icon with me.”

“A mother, who was feeding her baby at the time of the collision, lost it and luckily I found it alive under my seat,” he says. He freed another girl named Iphigenia from sheet metal that had covered half her body, along with her boyfriend who was begging for help. “He had a pulse,” he said.
