Tragic accident


Recommended Posts

A tragic accident happend Monday 8th October when a Leo 2 slipped from a ferry in Stendal/ Sachsen-Anhalt. The river Elbe has a very fast current and sadly the driver is still missing. The three other crew members managed to get free.

The crew are from Panzerbataillon 203, they are stationed in Augustdorf, Nordrhein-Westf?lia, which is just down the road from me. :(

At first it was thought that the driver might have been trapped in the tank but after the recovery which took three days this was found not to be the case.

There seems to be no hope that he is still alive.

Sincere condolence to familiy and friends.
