1/7

Sylvia M misses her son. Mother is desperate.

At least ten people have died in heavy rain and flooding off Italy’s Adriatic coast. The city of Ancona, which is also very popular among tourists, is particularly affected by incessant rains. According to officials, three people have been missing since the storm hit the Marche region on Thursday evening.

Emergency services, including 400 firefighters, were looking for two adults – a man and a woman – and eight-year-old Mattia El* on Saturday morning. It was torn from his mother’s arms during a storm on Thursday evening as they were getting out of their car.
