GOOD NEWS WATCH: 80-Year-Old Woman Rescued From Rubble After Devastating Italy Quake
While rescue efforts continued Wednesday morning following the devastating earthquake that killed more than 70 near Amatrice, Italy, photographers captured one bright spot among the destruction.
The elderly woman was later successfully pulled from the debris. She is recovering at a hospital in the city of Ascoli Piceno.
Sadly, however, officials said the woman’s 47-year-old daughter was one of the disaster’s casualties.
Three towns in the region were completely reduced to unstable rubble by the quake as well, MacCallum reported.
