The 27-year-old man was found sound and safe by a local, while waiting for rescuers to arrive.
Speaking with Greece’s Alpha TV, the man described the dramatic moments when his car was carried away. ”I opened the windows, my girlfriend managed to hold a branch of a tree and I did the same. I then walked into the nearby woods, where I found a hut. I stayed there until someone could find me,” he said.
