The crash occurred near Marina Grande in the Italian vacation island of Capri, which sits south of the Gulf of Naples in the Campania region, according to officials. Eyewitnesses on social media said the incident occurred about 11:30 a.m.

“The situation was really surreal,” said Giuseppe Russo, 26, who was at the scene. “There were helicopters flying to the island to transport the injured.”
