After the unsuccessful protest before the first European Championship game of the German national soccer team on Tuesday, the environmental protection organization Greenpeace apologized to its sponsoring members.

"On behalf of Greenpeace, I would like to once again expressly ask for forgiveness from those affected by this emergency landing," says an email from Greenpeace traffic expert Benjamin Stephan.

You take full responsibility and will "do everything possible to ensure that something like this never happens again."

A 38-year-old man from Pforzheim in Baden-Württemberg made an emergency landing on the pitch shortly before the game between Germany and France (0: 1) on Tuesday evening and injured two men who came to the hospital on the approach.

Both had left the clinic by Friday.

The police also confirmed that there had been a reference to the action from the environmental organization - but only after the pilot had already been approaching for landing.

Actually, Greenpeace wanted to protest against sponsor Volkswagen with the campaign.
