Rescuers were unable to do anything to help the family of three
Three family members visiting a steamy volcanic field near Naples have died after an 11-year-old boy entered an off-limits area and his parents followed to try to rescue him.
"I am shocked for what happened inside the Solfatara volcano and feel deep pain over the tragedy involving three tourists, and I express my condolences from the community of Pozzuoli to the victims' family", Pozzuoli mayor Vincenzo Figliolia told La Repubblica.
The couple's second son, aged seven-years-old, managed to get to safety.
According to the BBC, when his parents tried to pull him to safety, the crater's ground collapsed and they fell 5 feet.
A 7-year-old boy is the sole surviving member of a family that was wiped out in a horrific accident near Naples, Italy, on Tuesday.
Police said the boy apparently slipped after he breached a fence surrounding the prohibited area at the Solfatara Crater in Pozzuoli.

Official said the parents, who are from Turin, died after they tried to rescue one of their children who had fallen in the steaming crater.

Solfatara is a dormant volcano which still emits jets of steam and sulfurous fumes.
Eyewitness Diego Vitagliano, a worker at the site, said: 'I saw a child run crying, I did not think I was facing the worst tragedy of my life.
The Campi Flegrei area has over thirty active craters and is a popular tourist destination.
Its name comes from Latin term, Sulpha terra, or "land of sulfur", or "sulfur earth". The fields are scorching hot only a few inches below the surface.
