An 11-year old boy and his parents died after falling into a volcanic crater in Pozzuoli, near Naples, Tuesday.
The incident is believed to have occurred after the son fell into a hole at the Solfatara Crater, with his parents also falling in after attempting to rescue him.
The accident reportedly unfolded under the eyes of the pair’s second child, a 7-year-old boy, who survived as he did not enter the crater.
Tourists and emergency services rushed to the scene in the attempt of aiding the three. The bodies were later retrieved and taken to hospital for post-mortem examinations.
