Algeria – He was only 14 years old. The son of a military detachment at the Italian embassy in Algiers suffered a tragic end yesterday after a fatal fall, reports several Italian media.
Originally from Pompeii, an ancient city in western Italy, Pasquale Manzo, came to visit his father, a sergeant on a mission to Algeria, to spend the All Saints Day. At a moment of inattention while rolling on the grass the young teenager falls.
After resuscitation attempts made on the spot, he will be rushed to hospital. Too late, the young man could not be saved by the emergency doctors because he gave up the ghost on the way.
The Algerian authorities did not consider it appropriate to carry out an autopsy since the circumstances of the death were clarified by the testimony of the brigadier himself. His body will arrive in Italy, at Fiumicino Airport, between today and tomorrow, aboard a state plane.
