Mount Etna, the volcano in Italy, erupted while BBC crew was exploring.

MT. ETNA ERUPTS, MINIMAL INJURIES AMONG BBC FILM CREW

The BBC’s science reporter Rebecca Morelle was on the mountain with her team when lava and steam caused an unexpected explosion. Mt. Etna is one of the most active volcanoes on Earth, but this eruption was no anticipated in time.

“Running down a mountain pelted by rocks, dodging burning boulders and boiling steam – not an experience I ever ever want to repeat,” tweeted Morelle. “Bbc team all ok – some cuts/bruises and burns. Very shaken though – it was extremely scary,” she said in another.

Morelle and her team were up there filming for a report about advances in volcano monitoring when the explosion took place, showing scientists have a long way to go.

“Many injured – some head injuries, burns, cuts and bruises. Volcanologist said most dangerous incident experience in his 30 year career,” she continued on Twitter.

The journalist later tweeted a picture of herself holding her coat, which a huge rock had burned a hole into.
