Man charged in Poland escape room fire deaths

Five bodies were found inside the escape room

Five bodies were found inside the escape room

Koszalin prosecutor Ryszard Gasiorowski said a leak in the bottled gas heating system at the location was a probable cause of the fire.

Firefighters believe the girls who died at the site in Poland could have survived if there had been a proper evacuation route in place.

If convicted, he could face up to eight years in prison. A Polish news agency said it learned unofficially that the victims died from carbon monoxide asphyxiation.

Police chief Jaroslaw Szymczyk said people had previously posted critical remarks online about the safety of the Koszalin escape room site, but local officials were not notified.

Brudzinski directed the state fire service to carry out fire security controls in every escape room across the country, of which there are more than 1,000.

Interior Minister Joachim Brudzinski urged parents to report potential safety violations at escape rooms or other children's entertainment centres.

Crowds gathered for a mass at Koszalin Cathedral, where Bishop Edward Dajczak paid tribute to the girls.

Finally, a Bears-Vikings finale in Minnesota with meaning
Cousins also threw two interceptions against the Bears, whose 27 interceptions lead the National Football League by a wide margin. Vikings linebackers Anthony Barr and Eric Wilson struggled to come off blocks and had a hard time stopping Jordan Howard.

He later led public prayers in front of the house where they died.

Hundreds of lights, toys and white flowers have been left by the fence.

The bodies were found locked inside a room where players must find clues to get themselves out.

Prosecutors say a leaky gas container inside a heater is the most likely cause of the blaze.

Koszalin police spokeswoman, Monika Kosiec, said the victims were thought to have been celebrating one of their birthdays.

Four of the five 15-year-olds were named in local media and on social media as Karolina Barabas, Gosia Tymieniecka, Wiktoria Pietras and Amelia Wieczorek, according to the Daily Mail. Regarded as an intellectual challenge, the games have become increasingly popular among Polish teenagers in the past five years.
