The details from the police operation that rescued Michalis Lempidakis from his captors are shocking.
According to the information so far the businessman was found on a mattress literally chained to the ground.
When he saw the police officers he broke down and cried saying “Thank you. I can’t believe you saved me!”
The 53-year-old will undergo a medical check-up, give a first testimony to the police and will be reunited with his family as soon as possible.
One of the first information that has come out is that Mr Lempidakis weighs just 45 kilos!
“Thank God, his health is good and we are very happy about this”, were the first statements of Michalis Lempidakis’ father John.
