Police cars were called in and the shisha bar on the first floor was stormed. The operator and eight guests were found, two were also minors.

The “El Padrino” had to be evacuated immediately, as mandatory warnings for the toxic carbon monoxide (CO) were deactivated. In addition, the ventilation was not on. The danger was so great that the fire brigade came to ventilate the shisha bar with breathing protection.
