The man who died yesterday evening seven miles off the coast of Civitavecchia was 18 years old and of German nationality. The young man was on the ship Costa Toscana who had just left the port for Genoa, when some witnesses saw him fall into the sea. The crew had thrown him the life ring and put the boat RB1 in the water for a sudden recovery which, however, due to the bad weather conditions in the area, failed. In the meantime, under the coordination of the Port Authority of Civitavecchia, units of the Guardia di Finanza V902 and of the Fire Brigade VF R12 were also sent, as well as another patrol boat of the Coast Guard, the CP 301.

At about 22 pm the man was found by the personnel of the patrol boats with his face in the water and recovered from the sea. The body was transported ashore by Coast Guard naval unit CP 891, where medical personnel confirmed his death. The magistrate on duty, informed of the incident, arranged for the body to be sent to Verano in Rome.

The first investigations conducted would suggest a suicide of the eighteen-year-old German, given the discovery, on the deck of the ship, from the point where the man would have presumably thrown himself into the sea, of some of his personal items, including the mobile phone containing explicit messages in such sense.
