It would have been better if the criminals had rather contacted Mr. Salvador Martín (aka, professor from the series “Money Heist” from Netflix) instead of calling 911. This triggered a continuous operation of 8 hours to free the men from their tunnel.
Similar to the successful Netflix series “Money Heist“, the next criminals in Rome also now tried their luck and tried to dig a tunnel to the nearby bank branch without being noticed.
Last Wednesday, the emergency services in Rome (Italy) received an emergency call, it was initially assumed that this could come from a construction worker.

Similar to the successful Netflix series “Money Heist”, the next criminals in Rome tried their luck and tried to dig a tunnel to the nearby bank branch unnoticed.
Last Wednesday (03.08.2022) reached the rescue forces in Rome (Italy) an emergency call, it was initially assumed that this could come from a construction worker who was in an absolute emergency situation. On closer investigation, which construction company was busy on the spot, no company for such a project could be handed over.
4 men were involved in the whole action and tried without prior knowledge independently to dig a tunnel to get to the very large bills of the nearby bank branch. Ultimately, this was a question of time, when the tunnel will give way, because during their grab action with the shovel, the tunnel threatened to collapse and there was no more back and forth for the 4, which is why they finally had to dial 911 in this hopeless situation.

The road in the middle of the center in Rome had to be closed, according to reports, to get the men out of the ground, this called for a large contingent of rescue workers. In order to get the criminals out alive, they were continuously given water and sufficient oxygen by the paramedics throughout the entire period.
In addition to 30 firefighters and paramedics, civil engineering specialists were also deployed to ensure that the criminals were brought back to the light of day, although this required the road surface to be partially torn up.
During the rescue operation, 2 criminals tried to escape, but the police easily caught them and they were subsequently arrested for “resisting a police officer”.
As reported by the local newspaper “La Repubblica“, the men had previous convictions for drugs and theft offenses.
The gang has now been charged again with charges of “damaging” and “negligent breakdown of the road,” according to reports. In the near future, the perpetrators will have to answer for it in court.
