In Italy, a boy and his parents died tragically after falling into a volcano crater in Solfatara near Naples. The Turin family were visiting the area while on holiday.

It is not yet known how the accident occurred, with Italian media reports saying that the tragedy occurred when the 11-year old boy was walking in a prohibited area. When his parents tried to pull him back, the volcano’s crater collapsed and they fell a metre and a half down.
