A whole day trying to find it. In the nearby countryside. From yesterday, Friday 28th – it was more or less 11.00 am – until this morning, around 7 am, when on the little Diego, only three years old, in the Marinelle district, near Metaponto, in the Matera area, leaving his parents’ house, the most chilling news dropped: dead body was found. The body, found by the carabinieri of Pisticci, a town near Matera, assisted by the dog group of Florence, who intervened with the molecular dogs, was a stone’s throw from the reed that runs alongside the bed of the Bradano river. How it got there and what happened really early to say it. Certainly, immediately after the child had left home, searches began by the police and the many local volunteers. With the parents, of course.
Maybe a distraction
A moment of distraction from the parents could be the cause of the tragic accident. But it is not known how it got to that river. Bradano, the third largest and largest river in Lucania, and which flows in the Piana di Metaponto. Right under an overpass. The numerous canals of the river made research difficult: divers were employed for this reason. During the research, drones were also used to patrol the area.
With his dogs
Little Diego is the son of a couple of agricultural entrepreneurs, well known by the locals. According to the first reconstructions he would have left the front door together with the faithful family dogs. Maybe in a moment of family distraction. Firefighters, carabinieri, police and even a group of volunteers participated in the research, also conducted by helicopter.
