genoa - Davide Capello from the Italian city of Savona drove over the bridge in Genoa that collapsed Tuesday morning. The road surface disappeared into the abyss in front of him. He could no longer brake and collapsed no less than eighty meters.
'I do not know what saved me. But I'm okay ', he says from the ambulance to the newspaper La Stampa. Capello, who was quickly found by emergency services, is very happy that he has survived: 'It was frightening, apocalyptic, like in a movie. I have been very lucky, really a miracle. '
He does not understand how such a disaster can happen on one of the busiest roads in Italy. 'It is almost unthinkable. Thank God I can still retell it. '
