A woman and two of her children were crushed to death when part of a building collapsed in northern Italy as a third child, a nine-year-old boy, looked on, Italian news agencies reported Thursday.
The accident occurred Wednesday in the town of Albizzate, on the outskirts of Milan, when a cornice nearly 70 metres (230 feet) long suddenly fell from the one-storey building, crashing onto the street.
The woman, of Moroccan origin, and her five-year-old son were killed on the spot, while her 15-month-old daughter died later in hospital, the ANSA news agency said.
