Two brothers are currently the fastest grave diggers in central Europe after winning a grave-digging competition at an international exhibition of funeral, burial and cremation services on Thursday.
Ladislav and Csaba Skladan, aged 43 and 41 respectively, from Slovakia, dug a grave 1.5 meters deep, two meters long and 90 centimeters wide in 54 minutes in the Slovak town of Trencin. The brother beat 10 other teams made up of 2 diggers each to clinch the title. Their grave was also the neatest.
Speaking on their win, Ladislav said;
I had to focus on speed today but usually, when the weather is nice and I can chat with my brother, it’s a dream job.
