a iron rod almost 2 meters long, it detaches from the cornice of the building, rushes into the street and pierces the parked car below, piercing the roof and piercing the passenger seat. Tragedy touched on in Rome, in via Pietro Bembo 53, this afternoon, where a series of iron rods, the rods that are usually used on construction sites, fell from a Town Hall ending directly on the street, partly on the sidewalks. Only one pierced the roof of a parked car, piercing the seat next to the driver like a spear. Fortunately, there are no injuries.
The firefighters immediately intervened on the spot, with team 8 / A and Autoscala AS / 6, alerted by the Operations Room of the Rome Command. The firefighters carried out a rescue intervention on the facade of the town hall, where some iron rods had detached from the armor of the crowning cornice, falling on the roof of a car piercing it and on the street. For safety reasons, the fire brigade personnel then, during the intervention, removed the further unsafe parts and also closed the pedestrian crossing for several meters of the sidewalk. The urban police of Rome also arrived on the spot, to ensure that the operations of the firefighters could take place in peace and remove any onlookers from the dangerous area, where the safety operations were in progress. Fortunately, no one was hurt. The operation lasted several hours. Then everything went back to normal. Just a big scare for the inhabitants of the area and for passers-by.
