Police in Norway confirm that they were notified about a plan to poison people at the party earlier.
“I can confirm that, via our switchboard on Saturday, we received a phone call that a party was planned to happen at the concerning place. The person in question was put on to the tip guard in Greenland, but I do not know what assessment was made further in connection with it. What I can say is that, in general, we get a lot of tips”, says operations manager Cathrine Sylju in the Oslo police district to NTB.
On Sunday, 25 people were hospitalized with carbon monoxide poisoning after an illegal party in a cave on St. Hanshaugen in Oslo. The conditions of several of those hospitalized are said to be serious.
VG has spoken to a woman who says that she alerted the police fearing the danger of corona infection at the event. She herself was invited to the event, and does not want to be identified.
“I called the police at 11.42 yesterday and said that there was going to be a big party in that cave. I gave them directions and read out what was in the event. There were between 90 and 100 people who had responded “shall go“, and a lot of equipment had been set up inside the cave”, the woman told VG.
One 50-year-old man has been hospitalized while another man in His 30s is said to have lost his life after a terrible boat accident.
The police received a report of concern at 5.17 from the family of the two men.
“The men had gone on a fishing trip in a 17-foot open boat, around 11 pm, but when they did not return at the expected time, the family contacted the police to get help for the search”, says operations manager Ulf Slettan in the press release.
At 06.37, AMK was notified that an acquaintance of the family had found the missing boat on the islet Suttaren outside Leinesodden.
Local resources such as ambulance boat, pilot boat, police boat and air ambulance were activated. In addition, the lifeboat and rescue helicopter were dispatched, says Slettan, and continues:
“One of the men was confirmed dead by health personnel on the spot. The other was injured and was transported by air ambulance to hospital”.
He told NTB, that the injured man was found in the boat, while the deceased was found on land outside the boat.
Helgelands Blad is informed by the hospital in Sandnessjøen that the man has been transferred to St. Olav in Trondheim with fractures and head injuries, and that the condition was critical at the time of the transfer.
