Andrea Kiss, a tourist who filmed footage of lava moving down the side of the volcano around half an hour before the eruption, told CNN that she knew something had happened when "injured people appeared at the cable vehicle station".

Umberto Marino was headed up the slope on a snowcat when the injured people started running toward him, according to the Associated Press.
