Gondoliers set up Grand Canal memorial to crash victim

Venice, August 19 - Gondoliers set up a makeshift memorial Monday for the victim of a collision on the Grand Canal. On Saturday a water bus smashed into a gondola with a German family on board, killing the father and throwing the mother, three children and a gondolier into the water. The memorial, built on the gondolier dock near where the accident occurred, included a red shoe and a toy rubber ducky that belonged to the three-year-old girl who was hospitalized in the crash. Surrounded by floral arrangements, both items were retrieved by the same gondoliers who leapt into the water to rescue the family.
