Jamaican Government in touch with relatives of Jamaican woman and her family who died in Italian bridge collapse

Jamaica's Ministry of Foreign Affairs says it's in contact with the families of Jamaican Dawn Munroe and her husband Cristian Cecal who were killed along with their nine year daughter Crystal when a bridge collapsed in Genoa, Italy on August 15. They were among 43 people who died in the mishap.

In a news release, the foreign affairs ministry said it has been communicating with the relatives through Jamaica's Honorary Consul in Rome and has offered support to representatives of both families who are currently in Italy.

It said the Italian Government has taken charge of the situation and assigned a Red Cross Representative to provide additional support.

Dawna Munroe and her family were buried under concrete for three days.

They were among the last of the victims to be confirmed dead because of  the time it took rescuers to uncover their vehicle from the rubble.
