Two ambulances and a helicopter arrived at the scene but despite her desperate attempts to revive her, she was pronounced dead. Her husband was also thrown from the boat, sustaining serious injuries to his extremities. He was rushed to the Castiglione di Ravello hospital. The children were uninjured in the accident but suffered shock. The skipper of the boat was also injured and he was taken to hospital.
