Daughter saved – Italy: Bedridden man (98) dies in fire

In Cardeto, a municipality in the southern Italian region of Calabria, a 98-year-old man has died as a result of a serious fire. The bedridden man perished in the flames that engulfed his house. His daughter and son-in-law were rescued with minor injuries.

In Sardinia’s Nuoro province, a 55-year-old forest worker died at his home in Baunei after a hard day’s work to put out the fire. His death was due to a heart attack.

A record temperature of 48 degrees Celsius was measured in Sardinia on Tuesday. Like other Italian regions, Sardinia is struggling with several fires in its territory.
