An ancient amphora at the Archeological Museum of Heraklion was shattered to pieces after a tourist fell on it.
The sixty year old tourist began to feel dizzy while standing next to the ancient artefact. The woman fainted, falling on the ancient treasure, smashing it to pieces.
The guards did not know who to attend to first – the priceless treasure of Minoan Civilization or the tourist who was rushed to hospital. The tourist did not suffer serious injury.
Archeologists are now trying to piece the ancient item together.
