Two hundred coffins fell into the sea in Camogli, Italy, writes italy24news.com.
A landslide off the coast of the Ligurian Sea on Monday left two buildings in Camogli’s cemetery – and with them two hundred coffins –
practically collapsed into the sea.
Firefighters and divers arriving at the scene tried to rescue the coffins, but only ten of them had so far been able to get them out of the sea and under the ruins. In the coming days, however, they will still be working to get as many of them back as possible.
The devastation did not hit the village completely unexpectedly, as a project was already underway to stabilize the soil.
According to the Italian news agency ANSA, strange noises have been heard in recent days and they have noticed that the ground has started to sink in places, so the area has been sealed off.
Experts are now also examining whether there is a risk of further landslides in the area and, if so, whether they could endanger residential homes close to the sea.
