Rescue operation delayed: Berlin police file criminal charges against two climate activists from the group "Last Generation"

The Berlin police have filed criminal charges against two activists after rescue workers were deployed in a serious traffic accident, which was possibly hampered by climate blockades. The ads were written because of the failure to provide assistance and the disability of people providing assistance, said a police spokesman on Tuesday.

The 59 and 63-year-old activists from the Last Generation group are said to have stuck themselves to a so-called gantry of signs on the 100 city highway on Monday, thereby delaying traffic. In the traffic accident, a 44-year-old cyclist was hit and run over by a concrete mixer in the capital. According to the fire brigade, a special vehicle arrived late at the scene of the accident because it had been stuck in a traffic jam for a long time due to the activists' blockade.

While rescue workers were taking care of the woman, an unknown attacked the 64-year-old concrete mixer driver with a knife. The attacker then fled the scene of the accident. Both the cyclist and the truck driver were taken to the hospital. The woman suffered serious, life-threatening injuries. According to the police spokesman, she continued to be treated in the intensive care unit on Tuesday afternoon.

After the accident, the Berlin state government warned climate activists not to endanger human life. The opposition parties sharply criticized the activists.
