A crap way to dieWatch
A woman was reportedly driving a tractor on the family farm in Karczowka, a village in the west of Poland on Thursday, when she accidentally drove onto the cover of the industrial-sized septic tank, which gave way.
Seven of her family members bravely tried to rescue her by emptying the tank, which measured 50 square metres by a depth of three metres, but were overcome by noxious fumes and fell in.
A 45-year-old woman was taken to hospital by helicopter.
‘Doctors have confirmed the death of seven people, while an eighth is in hospital in a serious condition, Magdalena Bilinska, a fire brigade spokesman told Poland’s TVP.
