Apolda – Ten weeks after the tragic sinkhole in Unhealthy Sulza, wherein pension proprietor Christian Ok. († 62) fell right into a six meter deep gap whereas mowing the garden and died, the reason for the accident appears clear.
The Thuringian State Workplace for the Setting, Mining and Nature Conservation (TLUBN) assumes that outdated mining and the historic salt works in Unhealthy Sulza are guilty.
Though the analysis just isn’t but full, it’s based mostly “on archive materials, which primarily dates from the seventeenth century,” says TLUBN spokesman Nils Fröhlich. An skilled engineering workplace took over the additional investigations.
Tragic: As the general public prosecutor’s workplace in Erfurt instructed BILD, Ok. drowned within the groundwater because of the sudden landslide. Since an accident is assumed, the sufferer was not autopsied.
