Boy and his parents die after falling into volcanic crater in Italy

The boy's mother 42 and father 45 tried to pull him to safety only for the base of the crater to collapse. They are understood to have fallen 5ft but it is not yet known whether they were killed by the fall or by toxic gas fumes. Three body bags were

A family holiday to the handsome city of Naples has turned into a tragedy after an 11-year-old boy fell into a 1,000 degrees Celsius volcanic crater.

Three members of a family have died after falling into a volcanic crater in Italy, according to news reports. The father, 45, died while attempting to rescue them.

The couple's second son, seven-year-old Alessio, survived after scrambling back to safety. "I continue to think about that family and that poor baby crying and asking for help".

He described the scene at the site Tuesday.

According to the Italian fire brigade officers, the three dead bodies were pulled from a shallow hole in a section of the crater at the Solfatara volcano, which was cordoned off by a wooden fence meant to keep tourists out of the danger area.

Their bodies were retrieved a short time later before being placed in body bags and being taken away by an ambulance.

Asked whether Wilshere will start against the Germans, he said: "I don't give the team out today - I will give it out tomorrow". It is already clear that reasserting themselves in the Premier League will be a huge task for Arsenal this season.

The family, from Turin in northern Italy, are understood to have fallen 5ft.

The Solfatara is an inactive volcano which releases sulfurous fumes occasionally. "I express the full support of the community of Pozzuoli to the families of the victims".

The longtime-owner of a nearby bar said he had never witnessed a similar incident.

An 11-year-old boy slipped into the hole about 11 a.m. and both parents died while trying to save him in the hot mud. He and staff members tried to calm the boy who repeatedly requested for his parents.

According to the Associated Press, the exact cause of death for all three is still unclear, but recent heavy rains might have contributed to increased openings in the fields' surface.

The Solfatara crater is part of the Phlegraean Fields, locally known as Campi Flegrei (which means "burning fields"), a supervolcano dotted with several ancient volcanic craters and located west of Naples. He also suffocated on the toxic gasses emitted from the volcano.
