Three Children Pulled From Earthquake Rubble

Posted August 23, 2017

Rescuers on the Italian holiday island of Ischia pulled the last trapped child from rubble on August 22, 2017 after a magnitude-4.0 quake toppled buildings and left two people dead.

A woman has died and several others are missing after an Italian island was struck by a 3.6 magnitude quake on Monday evening.

The director of the island's hospital said two women were killed and about 40 injured. The hardest-hit area was Casamicciola, on the northern part of the island.

The baby, 7-month-old Pasquale, was in the kitchen in a playpen, and the first to be rescued around 4 a.m., seven hours after the quake struck.

The natural disaster came two days before the first anniversary of the devastating 6.2-magnitude tremor that killed nearly 300 people, including three Britons, in Amatrice, central Italy.

A few hours after the 4.0 magnitude quake that hit the Italian island of Ischia, a second child has been rescued by the Italian firefighters.

Ischia, off the coast of Naples, has a population of about 50,000 and is hugely popular with tourists, many of whom were out in bars and restaurants when the shaking started.

When the quake struck just before 9 p.m. Monday, the boys' father, Alessandro Toscano, said he was in the kitchen while his wife, Alessia, was in the bathroom and his two older sons in their bedroom.

The natural disaster that hit the island killed one and injured 25 others, officials said. And as well as the two deaths, 42 people were injured, one seriously. More than 2,500 people have been rendered homeless or displaced, and almost 1,500 people have fled the island. Hotels and residences on the coast did not appear to suffer serious damage.

Earlier in the day, Italy's Civil Protection Department head Angelo Borrelli said that almost 2,600 people had been rendered homeless by this natural calamity. Some civil protection squads were already on the island because of brush fires.

The degree of the harm for a moderately light shake brought up issues about the nature of development on the island in the seismically dynamic territory off Naples and the dynamic spring of gushing lava Vesuvius, and the commonness of illicitly constructed structures.
