    IT ∙ 37 reported dead and many injured as bus plunges down steep slope near Avellino

    Italy: at least 37 reported dead in bus crash. (Guardian)
    At least 37 people died and many others were injured when a coach carrying a group of tourists through southern Italy crashed into several vehicles, careered off a viaduct and then plunged down a steep slope.

    As emergency workers contended with the dark and highly precarious terrain to try to pull bodies from the wreckage, firefighters said most of the bodies had been found inside the coach and a few more beneath the vehicle.

    Odd thought. They actually take wooden coffins to pick them up. In the US they use body bags.
    Just when I think that I have seen the most depraved things a human can do to another human, somebody posts a new story...........

    Why is it that when a custodial parent fails to provide for a child it is called neglect and is a criminal matter. But when a non custodial parent fails to provide it is called failure to support and is a civil matter?

    This is heartbreaking.
    "A mother who was seriously injured in the horror coach crash that killed 39 people in Italy last month refused further treatment today until she sees her husband and two daughters... unaware they are all dead.

    Clorinda del Giudice, 44, was on the bus with spouse Antonio and children Simona, 16, and Silvana, 22, when it careered into the guardrail of a flyover near the town of Avellino, and plummetted 100 feet into a ravine on June 28.

    Heartrendingly, her refusal came hours after her daughter Simona lost her two-week fight for life today, making her the 39th fatality of the crash."

    "The elder sibling had only agreed to come on the trip at the last minute, having had a fight with her boyfriend.
    But in a horrific case of mistaken identity, their emotional grandfather, dazed by grief as he arrived at the makeshift morgue, mistook the body of Silvana for that of her younger sister, Italian media reported.

    Because of the mix-up, Silvana’s boyfriend arrived at the hospital that afternoon to make up with his lover, whom he believed was still alive, although badly injured.

    Finding in the hospital bed instead, her younger sibling, who had the same blue eyes, he collapsed to the ground in tears, the Italian newspaper la Repubblica reported.

    There was no one left but the grandfather to return to the morgue to re-identify Silvana.

    Clear your mind must be, if you are to discover the real villains behind this plot. Opinion only, my posts are.

    I can't stand the heartache.

    Justice for Travis


    Sometimes the first step towards forgiveness is understanding that the other person is a complete idiot.
