9-year-old twins Sofia and Vasiliki disappeared embracing in the fire in Mati – The story of the Filippopoulou family

The deadly fire of July 23, 2018 in Mati marked the Filippopoulou family with their 9-year-old twins, Sofia and Vasiliki, who died tragically together with their grandparents.

Their story is one of the most shocking stories that have emerged from the deadly tragedy in eastern Attica. The twin angels, who had been missing with their grandparents since “Black” Monday afternoon, died in the flames with their grandparents, trying to escape to the sea. This is how fate wanted them to be born and die together.


Giannis Filippopoulos, the girls’ father, had then appeared on television and said that his 9-year-old twin girls, along with his grandparents, were missing.

The parents went to hospitals, the Police and the Fire Brigade, without result, while in the end they even arrived at the morgue in Goudi, where they gave a sample of genetic material, again without any result.

However, by chance, a little later, the parents “recognized” the children live, in footage of a television station from the port of Rafina, where they were transported by private boats and boats of the Coast Guard rescued who had taken refuge on beaches in Mati. It was soon clarified, however, that the girls on the boat were not the twins and since then the effort to locate them has begun.

Parents hoped to distinguish their children but fate was relentless. The dramatic ending was written as the twins along with their grandparents died horribly in the fatal plot where 26 people were found, who had encountered a dead end there in their attempt to reach the sea to escape the fiery flame.

An Amber Alert from Child’s Smile was also issued to find them.
