Moments later, Imbesi (35) from Sicily was killed when he was hit by a falling rock.

His friend, who filmed the video, was dehydrated and found in a state of shock, according to local media.

Terrified tourists in the local town of Ginostra at the foot of the volcano fled into the sea when they heard the eruption.

American tourist and father Peter Bridges told MailOnline: & When the boom first broke and the rubble started to fly, we thought there could be more of it, we all thought it could get much worse, so the thought (of death) crosses your mind. & # 39;

& # 39; People screamed and ran – from houses, from restaurants. We stopped to take a few photos, but then a man said we had to go because rocks could hit us from where we were. & # 39;
