Indonesian President Joko Widodo traveled to the disaster area again today and got an idea of the situation by looking at a collapsed kindergarten. He stressed that “saving the victims must be a priority.” “I learned that 30 people are still missing in this area alone.”
Many children are among the victims
No one died in the kindergarten in the village of Szegedel because the children had gone home at the time of the earthquake. However, the ruins of the building are a clear sign of the devastation caused by the tremors: only a children’s slide and carousels remain on the site, everything else is in ruins. According to the Civil Protection, 37 percent of all victims are children under the age of 15.
