Nine members of one family died in Casteldaccia, near Palermo, as a rain-swollen river flooded a home. The victims were from two families who had gathered in the country villa for the weekend.
Torrential rain triggering landslides and flood waters led to the death of 10 people in the region around Palermo, a spokesman for the Sicilian capital's Prefecture said on Sunday. "There was a river of water, I was knocked down and grabbed hold of a tree, ' Giuseppe Giordano told reporters between sobs". The survivor used his cellphone to call for help but it was too late for the others, including a one-year-old baby and a three-year-old child. "My son Federico, carrying one of the children said "Dad, I will hold her up" and all of a sudden I saw all the windows go dark, and I took the keys of the vehicle to try to get out but then the window exploded, the wall fell in and the lights went out".
