The incident occurred in the city of Koshalin in the popular quest room "Escape Room". Its essence is that players are locked in a room or building and they have to find the keys that will help them get out.

Interior Minister Joachim Brudzinski said that all the girls were 15 years old. The local news named the names of four teenagers, among them: Karolina Barabas, Victoria Julia Petras, Gosya Tymieniecka and Amelia Wieczorek. They were all classmates.

The representative of the local police Monica Kozec (Monika Kosiec) last Friday said that classmates celebrated the birthday of one of the girls.

The possible cause of death of the girls was asphyxiation with smoke gas. At the moment when the fire started, they did not complete even half of the tasks of the quest room.

Also that evening, a 24-year-old man was hospitalized with severe burns. He is currently unable to give evidence, as he is in critical condition in intensive care.
