Family die after falling into volcanic crater in Italy

Family die after falling into volcanic crater in Italy

An 11-year-old Italian boy and his parents have died after tumbling into a muddy, gaseous cravasse which opened up at the volcanic crater they were visiting near Naples. His parents, said to be 42 and 45, went to retrieve him and their weight apparently caused a hole-some reports have it at 5 feet deep, others at almost 10-to open.

Italian reports identified them as Massimiliano Carrer, Tiziana Zaramella and their son, Lorenzo. She also fell into the crater, and all were believed to have been overcome by fumes. ANSA describes them as falling into a "pit of boiling-hot mud".

Another of the couple's sons, a seven-year-old, survived amid reports he was able to scramble to safety. We realized that something had happened and we approached the crater. I did not imagine what I would see. "It was inside a fenced-off area". A tragedy, they pulled out two bodies, then pulled us away. "I continue to think about that family and that poor baby crying and asking for help".

The 7-year-old was brought to his establishment after the tragedy.

The boy's parents tried to save him but the crater collapsed, The Guardian wrote. "Of course he was in shock".

The child's grandparents were expected to retrieve their grandson from Pozzuoli, where he was being cared for by social workers and a psychologist, La Repubblica reported. His grandparents were expected to arrive in the afternoon.

The episode happened Tuesday at the Solfatara Crater in Pozzuoli, a prominent vacation spot close Naples.

Its name comes from Latin term, Sulpha terra, or "land of sulfur", or "sulfur earth".

The volcanic fields are scorching hot just inches below the surface of the ground.
