An American tourist was killed in a boating accident off Italy’s Amalfi Coast on Tuesday. The victim, who has not been identified, was traveling with her husband and two children when their motorboat collided with a party boat full of American and German tourists.
The accident happened in the Gulf of Salerno, near the town of Positano. The motorboat was traveling from Positano to Amalfi when it collided with the party boat, which was headed in the opposite direction.
The victim was pronounced dead at the scene. Her husband and two children were taken to a hospital in Salerno with minor injuries. The other tourists on the party boat were also unharmed.
The cause of the accident is still under investigation. However, authorities believe that the motorboat may have been speeding.
This is the second fatal boating accident in the Gulf of Salerno in recent months. In May, a British tourist was killed when his speedboat collided with a fishing boat.
The Amalfi Coast is a popular tourist destination, and boating accidents are not uncommon. However, this is the first fatal boating accident in the area since 2019.
The authorities have warned tourists to be careful when boating in the Gulf of Salerno. They have also urged boaters to obey the speed limit and to be aware of their surroundings.
The victim’s family has been notified of her death. They have asked for privacy during this difficult time.
