BBC film crew pummelled by falling rocks from erupting volcano

Mount Etna erupts

At least ten people were injured from the flying debris- taking shelter in a passing snowcat.

Mount Etna, Europe's largest active volcano, erupted for the second time in a month this week, spewing lava hundreds of feet into the air above Sicily.

Etna rises above the town of Catania, and records of its activity date back to 1,500 B.C. According to the Volcano Discovery site, there have been more than four dozen eruptions, with one ongoing.

The frightening ordeal was caught on camera by a BBC film crew, and science reporter Rebecca Morelle described the chaos.

Mt Etna in Sicily is one of the world's most active volcanoes, with a major eruption occurring once every few years.

Six people were taken to hospital in Catania and Acireale but doctors said their condition was not serious.
