Building Collapses in Italy Killing Pregnant Nurse Visiting Her In-laws by peter: Mon Dec 2021 11:17pm
Rescuers were searching Monday for two missing people among the rubble of collapsed buildings on the Italian island of Sicily after seven people including a pregnant nurse died in a suspected gas explosion.

The blast tore through four residential buildings on Saturday evening in the southern town of Ravanusa, with one survivor describing it “as if a bomb had gone off”.



Around 100 emergency workers have been picking their way through the rubble ever since, in what firefighters said was a “delicate and complex” operation.

After four bodies were pulled out at dawn, Monday’s efforts focused on finding the last two missing people.


Media reports suggest the victims and the missing are all related. Among the dead was a 30-year-old nurse, named as Selene, who was nine months pregnant and due to give birth within days.

The blast levelled four structures, including a four-storey apartment building, in the central residential district of the town of nearly 11,000 inhabitants, according to Italy’s civil protection agency.

Images from the scene showed a mass of concrete rubble, wooden beams and mangled steel in a large empty space, with neighbouring buildings charred and damaged.

The nurse’s body was found alongside that of her husband Giuseppe Carmina, and his parents. The couple had been visiting the soon-to-be grandparents on the third floor of their building.
