Three Italians die after falling into hole at volcano near Naples

  Three Italians die after falling into hole at volcano near Naples An Italian couple and their 11-year-old son were killed on Tuesday when a hole opened up in the ground at a bubbling volcanic crater near Naples, a popular tourist site. Italy's fire brigade said it pulled three dead bodies from a shallow hole in a section of the crater at the Solfatara volcano, which was surrounded by a wooden fence meant to keep tourists out. The victims were a 45-year-old man, a 42-year-old woman and their son. Another seven-year-old son did not fall into the hole and was unharmed, national fire brigade spokesman Luca Cari said.

A police affidavit says Frink told officers he went to the hospital to kill his mother. No reason or motive was given. When Frink went to visit her Tuesday, Robert Ferriere was in the room and Frink asked to spend some time alone with his mother, authorities said .

A Warwick, R.I., man who is accused of shooting his 70-year-old mother to death while she lay in the intensive care unit of Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center in Lebanon, N.H., is due in court Wednesday for arraignment on a first-degree murder charge.

Travis M. Frink, 48, is set to appear in Grafton County Superior Court in North Haverhill at 1 p.m., officials said. He’s accused of gunning down his mother, Pamela Ferriere, 70, of Groton, N.H., on Tuesday afternoon, setting off a lockdown at New Hampshire’s largest hospital that lasted for several hours.

Frink had signed into the visitor’s desk at the hospital around 1:15 p.m. Tuesday.

NORTH HAVERHILL, N . H . (AP) — A man charged with killing his 70-year-old mother in her room at a hospital intensive care unit had asked his stepfather to leave so they could be alone and then aimed a gun at her and fired several times , according to a police complaint released Wednesday.

A police affidavit says Frink told officers he went to the hospital to kill his mother. No reason or motive was given. When Frink went to visit her Tuesday, Robert Ferriere was in the room and Frink asked to spend some time alone with his mother, authorities said .

Frink’s mother had been in the ICU receiving treatment for an aneurism and was scheduled to be released Friday, the affidavit said.

Bonilla wrote that Ferrier’s husband, Robert Ferrier, who is Frink’s stepfather, was in his wife’s hospital room when Frink entered. Frink asked his stepfather if he could have time alone with his mother, and Robert Ferrier left after his wife told him it was okay, the affidavit said.

But once he exited the room, Robert Ferrier heard his terrified wife scream, so he turned around and saw Frink fire “several shots,” the filing said.

“Frink did not say a word,” Bonilla wrote. “Frink put the gun in a bag he had been holding and walked by Robert Ferrier without saying a word. Robert Ferrier then called for help.”

A motive for the killing has not been disclosed.

Frink was later arrested as he tried to leave the hospital grounds. He confessed to the brutal killing after waiving his Miranda rights, according to the document and authorities.

Dr. Joanne M. Conroy, the hospital’s chief executive and president, on Tuesday called the shooting “an incredibly stressful and tragic day for the affected family.”

After the killing, the hospital went into a “code silver,” which calls for immediate evacuation. As of 5:30 p.m., staff were allowed back in the hospital, and by 6:20 p.m. SWAT teams had cleared the hospital, officials said.

London fire probe chief: Survivors feel 'anger and betrayal'

  London fire probe chief: Survivors feel 'anger and betrayal' A government-ordered inquiry into the London tower fire that killed at least 80 people opened Thursday with a minute of silence for the victims.Retired judge Martin Moore-Bick said he hoped his investigation would "provide a small measure of solace" by discovering how such a disaster could occur in 21st-century London, and preventing it happening again.

NORTH HAVERHILL, N . H . (AP) — A man charged with killing his 70-year-old mother in her room at a hospital intensive care unit had asked his stepfather to leave so they could be alone and then aimed a gun at her and fired several times , according to a police complaint released Wednesday.

In 2013, Warwick police had identified the victims in the running car case as Kathleen Frink, 39, and Ryan Frink, 3. They were found inside a car at the Fairfax Village Apartment Complex in Warwick on the night of Aug. 17, police said at the time in a statement, and the vehicle had “apparently been idling for several hours.”

The statement said there were no initial indications of foul play.

“An initial investigation has determined that the victims had no known associates or relatives at this particular apartment complex,” the statement said. “Investigators spoke with several residents of the complex, and it is believed that the vehicle had been parked at that location since approximately noon on Saturday. Investigators also indicated that someone had heard what sounded like a child crying at around 5pm, however no calls were placed to the police.”

Court records in Rhode Island show that Travis and Kathleen Frink had entered divorce proceedings several years ago.
