Coastal town in Liguria looks for landslide coffins in the sea


Camogli – In the Ligurian coastal town of Camogli, parts of the cemetery high above the sea with dozens of coffins fell into the depths in a landslide. With stones and rubble from the cliff, coffins slipped directly into the water in the accident on Monday. “The search for the human remains affected by the disaster is still ongoing,” said Mayor Francesco Olivari on Tuesday.

Shortly after the demolition, the fire brigade, coast guard and other helpers had started the rescue from the sea with boats below the picturesque cemetery. According to Italian agency reports, there could be around 200 coffins and other items from the graves. Workers who were working in the cemetery heard a loud noise, then the outer wall and part of the site broke away. “Some of the fallen remains are probably also on the slope under the rubble,” explained Olivari.

The cause of the landslide in the region popular with tourists with many rocky cliffs near Genoa was initially open. According to Olivari, however, heavy rainfall in recent years could have changed the subsoil. There were no injuries in the landslide. At first, experts saw no great danger to other buildings in the vicinity. Camogli is a historic port town with a medieval defensive castle. (WHAT / dpa)
