There are about two hundred coffins dragged away by a landslide and partly ended up in the sea in Camogli (Genoa) following the collapse of a portion of the cemetery, located on the coast line of the tourist resort, about 50 meters above sea level. The landslide also destroyed two chapels with the bodies contained inside and slipped into the water. The collapse would have been caused by the erosion of the cliff below the cemetery area, aggravated in all probability by the violent storms that have hit Liguria in recent years. Teams of divers from the fire brigade, boats from the Coast Guard and the firefighters themselves, as well as a fire brigade helicopter went to the site of the collapse. Some coffins ended up in the sea and operations are underway to recover them and bring them back to the port of Camogli but many have remained stuck on the rocks and in the earth brought by the landslide and their recovery is currently defined as complicated.
