– STAZZEMA (LUCCA), 20 AUG – A 35-year-old employee of the Del Freo mountain refuge, at the mouth of Mosceta in the municipality of Stazzema (Lucca), was struck by indirect electrocution while he was on the phone outdoors. In the afternoon there was a storm in the upper Versilia and lightning struck the phone but the strong electromagnetic discharge would not have created serious consequences for man. Alpine Rescue personnel intervened on the spot and reached the refuge by land, given that due to the weather conditions the Pegaso helicopter, which had been alerted, was unable to take off. The man was transported to the Versilia hospital in Camaiore (Lucca). (HANDLE).
