Rescuse Mission Valentini

The days of raining rasied the level of the river Po, the Murazzi along the river bank is basically immersed in water, running current brought down all kind of things on its way, including the two Valentini.

The Valentino and Valentina were the two boats which carried tourists for a tour on the the river along the Valentino Park, it was one of the tourist's favourite activity.

This morning, tragic happened, the two Valentini broke free of their chains and run away following the current.

They were blocked by  the Vittorio Emanuele I bridge, and stucked under the arch of the bridge.

Emergency rescuse was activated. 2 big cranes were setup to secure the two boats and to pull them to safety.

Unfortunately when Valentino was pulled to safety, Valentina slipped, hit herself on the bottom side of the bridge and overturned, then she was brought away by the merciless river, separated with Valentino forever.....

Once they were happy togther..... making people happy....

Quite a loss, and a headache to have to deal with.
