ITALY: Eitan, 5, is the sole survivor of the cable car accident that killed 14 people in northern Italy on Sunday. After days of uncertainty regarding his health, the boy finally woke up on Thursday after being in a coma.
As De Bild explains, the boy is now breathing independently and has already been able to exchange a few words with his aunt, Aya, who came to his bedside. Eitan’s first words, however, were heartbreaking for the woman. “Hello aunt. Why are you here ? Where am I ? Where are my mom and dad? He asked when he saw Aya this Friday.
On Wednesday, three officials from the company operating the cable car were arrested for deliberately disabling the emergency braking system that should have blocked the cabin when the cable broke.
