According to the website, the pensioner from Arkesini of Amorgos, put an end to his life at about 7 a.m. on July 30. The 75-year old man could not stand the fact that he could not help  financially his now unemployed son who is married with children, while he had continuous custody of his second son with serious health problems.
Those who knew him say that from the day his son was fired from the musical part of ERT, the old man was really in distress. Day by day, he was falling into depression since he could not accept the fact that he could not financially support his unemployed son and his family.
On Tuesday, he left the house and after a while was found at the Arkesini reservoir, where farmers collect the rainwater, opened the heavy lid and fell to his death.
