Par­ents and lad, 11, die at vol­canic site

Midweek Sport - - # HOT’N’HORNY -

THREE fam­ily mem­bers vis­it­ing a vol­canic field near Naples have died af­ter an 11-year-old boy en­tered an off-lim­its area and his par­ents fol­lowed to try to res­cue him.

Po­lice said the boy ap­par­ently slipped af­ter he breached a fence sur­round­ing the pro­hib­ited area at the Sol­fa­tara Crater in Poz­zuoli, Italy.

A seven-year-old boy who is a mem­ber of the same Ital­ian fam­ily was nearby but re­mained out­side the fence.

It was not im­me­di­ately clear if the 11-year-old and his par­ents were over­come by gases or were killed as the re­sult of an ex­plo­sion of su­per-heated mud.

Heavy rain in re­cent days may have played a role by cre­at­ing more open­ings in the vol­canic field’s sur­face.
