A tragic accident. A 21 year old Romanian girl was taken to the emergency room at Annunziata tonight Cosenza with a gunshot wound to the face. It is a 7.65 caliber pistol shot. She was immediately hospitalized and underwent surgery and has a guarded prognosis. The twenty-one year old was in the house of other Romanians in the historic center of Bruzio. The house contained weapons legally owned by the owner who had since died.

Among these is the gun with which one of the occupants of the apartment appears to have been inappropriately playing when the shot went off. It was the same compatriots who took the wound to hospital. Mobile, directed by Gabriele Presti, is investigating the case. The police commissioner Giuseppe Cannizzaro ordered checks throughout the area, searches and the interrogation of about ten people. The direction of the investigations was assumed by the chief prosecutor Mario Spagnuolo.

The investigators themselves do not rule out that it may have been an accidental event.
