Two Iranians die in Tbilisi due to gas leak
Two Iranian citizens have died on Shartava street in Tbilisi’s Saburtalo district allegedly due to a gas leak resulting in carbon monoxide poisoning, Tbilisi Energy gas supply company reports.
The company also says that an open-combustion water heater was installed in the apartment, the installation of which indoors is prohibited in Georgia.
"The two people lived in a rented flat which was registered as a commercial space, but which was ‘arbitrarily converted to residential," Tbilisi Energy says.
The Georgian Interior Ministry is investigating the case. Agenda.ge reported.
