The tragedy is said to have unfolded when the older son walked into a prohibited area at Solfatara near Naples in the country's south west. When the boy's 42-year-old mother tried to save her husband, she was also sucked in.

Authorities said the three likely died of asphyxiation from deadly gasses.

According to the Italian fire brigade officers, the three dead bodies were pulled from a shallow hole in a section of the crater at the Solfatara volcano, which was cordoned off by a wooden fence meant to keep tourists out of the danger area.

A seven-year-old boy managed to scramble to safety amid the chaos and cry for help, The Sun reports.

Rescuers carries the coffins of three people who died when they fell into a crater in a steamy volcanic field in Pozzuoli, near Naples, Italy, on Tuesday.

"Either there was a small explosion, or the ground simply gave way from their weight, and they fell into this hole".
