Ortona, two young boys died at sea
The two 11 and 14-year-old boys who were lost at sea in Ortona, in the Chieti area, were found dead. The bodies were found on a breakwater cliff, in two distinct points, but a few meters away from each other. The research was immediately started at sea, in the area of the station of Tollo, in Ortona, in the Chieti area. The two - 11 and 14 years old, of Chinese nationality - were bathing with their father, when all three were seen in difficulty in the rough sea. The parent has been rescued.
August passed with the family
They were on a trip with the family to the sea, in the Chieti area, to spend the August holiday. They were bathing in a stretch of free beach, near the cliff, not far from the shore. The kids were at the beach with their parents and the younger brother, who, at the time of the tragedy, was on the beach with his mother. The two would start swimming between two rows of breakwaters, then get behind the cliff. The waves would have thrown them with violence against the rocks, so that the body of one of the two brothers was then recovered at a depth of three meters, stuck between the rocks. Dad tried to reach them, without success. When the alarm went off, the lifeguards of a nearby beach establishment arrived and rescued the parent. The rescue operations started immediately. The police of the Station and of the Company of Ortona and the personnel of the local Harbor Master's Office are investigating the case. The mother and father of the kids are the owners of a home goods store in Montesilvano (Pescara).
