Paolo Claudio Agatino Grassidonio, the 53-year-old man who died yesterday in Gravina di Catania from the storm that struck in the Catania area, was a volunteer of the National Carabinieri Association (Anc) of Nicolosi. This was announced by the Regional Department of Civil Protection (DRPC) Sicily.

“We do not know if he was going to help someone in those moments – writes the Regional Civil Protection on Facebook – but he met his fate, overwhelmed by the fury of an unimaginable event. The news that Paolo Grassidonio was a Civil Protection volunteer came only in the late evening, when the official confirmation of the man’s identity arrived. That is, while his colleagues were still rescuing citizens in various areas of the city or pumping water out of their homes in Catania. The despair over the death of his colleague made itself felt, but – the post continues – even in his name everyone continued their commitment to others ».

«There are numerous messages of condolence – it is still written in the post – that have also reached the family via social media, from colleagues, ordinary citizens and the authorities; the same Head of Civil Protection, Fabrizio Curcio, today during the meeting in the Prefecture highlighted the fact that Grassidonio belonged to the community of Civil Protection volunteers. The condolences of the general manager, Salvo Cocina, reach the family, also on behalf of all the staff of the Drpc Sicily ».
