A seven-month-old baby has been pulled alive from rubble after an earthquake hit the Italian holiday island of Ischia, killing at least two people. The baby boy was rescued at 0400 local time.

A third brother, Ciro, eight, remains trapped in the rubble but firefighters are in contact with him and say they are confident they will be able to extract him too. The 4.0 magnitude quake hit the island, in the Bay of Naples, at 8.57pm on Monday. Up to 40 people were injured, including one seriously. An elderly woman was killed by masonry falling from a church, while a second woman was found dead beneath the rubble of her home.

It was like a bomb. At first, we didn?t understand that it was an earthquake,? said Simona Postiglione, a local resident. In one smashed building, a family of seven people were trapped beneath the rubble. They were extracted one by one, including the seven-month-old baby, named Pasquale, who was pulled out alive in the early hours of Tuesday. #22ago 4:00 #Ischia, miracolo #vigilidelfuoco: estratto in vita il neonato dalle macerie di #casamicciolapic.twitter.com/LTfeaAHyL8?
