Seven boys from Florence beaten to death in Warsaw for mistaken identity: 3 are in hospital

WARSAW. They took them from behind, attacked and beat them to death. Violent night for 7 Italian boys who were in Poland, where their vacation has turned into a nightmare. The group of young people, all in their twenties, was in Warsaw: the attack took place outside a nightclub at 4 am between Friday and Saturday. The boys all live in Scandicci, a town in the Florentine metropolitan area.

The attack, he reports The nation, was of unprecedented violence: the thugs wore handbags and beat to leave deep marks. Three Italian boys ended up in hospital after the attack. The most serious has fractures to a cheekbone and eye socket, as well as a foot: he will have to be operated on. A second boy is under observation for a possible internal bleeding in the abdomen after being kicked in the stomach, the third young man from Scandicci suffered more minor injuries and was discharged after a night in the hospital.

According to an initial reconstruction by the Polish police, the seven Italians would have ended up at the center of an exchange of people. The gang that beat them had gone out hunting for another group of our compatriots, it is not clear why they wanted to make them pay. But the investigations are underway, in Warsaw the agents have interrogated the 20-year-olds hospitalized and their friends several times.

The group left Scandicci last Thursday to visit two friends who are studying in Poland for Erasmus. «My son – says Beatrice, the mother of one of the young patients – was the first time he took the plane for a trip. The boys are very close. They grew up together, we parents know each other and we hang out. It is a really difficult, absurd situation ». The parents of the young man who will have to undergo the surgery have already left for Warsaw, the relatives of the others are in contact with the embassy.

The trip was planned for the All Saints’ Bridge and, the families tell us, it was much awaited. Of the three injured, the young man who suffered a serious fracture to his face remains in hospital with the risk of considerable damage to one eye: according to what is learned, the family members, who have reached Warsaw, would like to have him operated in Florence. He is the only one who remains in the hospital. In fact, after two days of observation, the other friend who suffered numerous kicks in the abdomen in the beating caused him internal bleeding was discharged. The mayor of Scandicci Sandro Fallani is working towards the group’s return to Italy: he contacted the Italian embassy in Warsaw, the carabinieri and also, regarding the boy still in hospital and the other injured, the ASL Toscana Centro to organize the return and hospitalization in Florence where medical checks will have to be carried out. The Polish gang, according to the stories circulating in Scandicci, would have acted with considerable fury after meeting young people outside a nightclub in the city center. The seven boys had left the club to go and find another friend of theirs, also from Scandicci, who had stayed in another night club. It is at this juncture that they met the Polish thugs: they attacked them until they saw them without strength and wounded on the ground.
