Two children were pulled to safety in Protaras after being trapped in a rocky area in Kapparis beach.

According to an online post by the Fire Department, officials were notified on Wednesday afternoon at 4:17pm regarding individuals who were trapped and needed assistance in the rocky area of Kapparis Beach, Paralimni, on the eastern coast of the island.

Emergency rescuers who rushed to the scene found two children, aged 10 and 12, who were trapped at the bottom of steep cliffs and couldn’t find a trail to walk to safety.

Rescuers used fire rescue ropes and special harnesses to pull the children to safety, where police officers were waiting for them.

Kapparis beach is also known as SWAT or fireman’s beach due to special law enforcement officers carrying out drills and training in the rocky area.

No injuries were reported over the incident.
