(LaPresse) “We could have died but fortunately we managed to get out safely.” Frightening moments for high school children from Roseto degli Abruzzi (TE) at the Globe Theatre in Villa Borghese in Rome when a staircase collapsed. Twelve young people and chaperones were injured in the accident during the exit at the end of the show. “We heard a bang and the ladder collapsed all at once. The problem was the confusion that came immediately afterwards but fortunately we managed to get out,” the young people still shaken by the incident tell outside the Roman theater. “A serious episode. It must be cleared up with great care and severity to understand who and where they did wrong,” said Capital Mayor Roberto Gualtieri who arrived at the scene for an inspection.
