Final footage by late Anadolu photojournalist found - Anadolu

27.05.2019, 14:25
In northeastern Turkey, the final footage of an Anadolu Agency photojournalist who perished on duty has been recovered, as Anadolu news agency reported. On May 10, Abdulkadir Nisanci was on assignment on Mt. Soganli, located between the northeastern Bayburt and Trabzon provinces, when he fell off a cliff. Nisanci apparently slipped when a block of snow he stepped on broke loose at the Derebasi Curves area -- known as an extremely dangerous area. For around half the year, the area is closed to traffic due to heavy snow. His body was found two weeks after he went missing, in a stream a kilometer from the cliff he fell from. His camera along with a tripod was found earlier by rescue teams 100 meters below. After investigation by gendarmerie forces, the camera and other equipment were given to Anadolu Agency officials. The three-minute-plus-video shot by Nisanci shows a plow clearing away snow from different directions. Nisanci was apparently trying to get the best shot of snow being ejected from the snowplow, but his camera was not recording when he fell. Two Turkish soldiers were also martyred during search and rescue efforts for the lost photojournalist. Anadolu
