A magnitude-4.0 quake struck the Italian holiday island of Ischia, causing destruction that left two people dead at peak tourist season, authorities said, as rescue workers struggled early Tuesday to free two children from the rubble.

A seven-moth old baby has been pulled alive from a pile of rubble after an natural disaster hit the Italian holiday island of Ischia, killing two people and injuring dozens more.

Hospital officials said that the boys were expected to be released Wednesday. "We were all dead, and we are reborn".

At least two women were killed and 39 people were injured by the quake on the island popular with tourists.

One of the victims was killed when she was hit by falling masonry from the church of Santa Maria del Suffragio, according to the Civil Protection Department in Rome. Another died in the same apartment complex where the family was saved. They kept talking to them and fed water to them through a tube. His two brothers, ages 3 and 11, were also rescued from the rubble of their home.

Pictures and footage published by the Italian media showed about six buildings and a church collapsing in the quake.

In a statement, Peduto also argued that such a low magnitude natural disaster would not normally cause buildings to collapse. "We are working non-stop to pull out Ciro", Italian fire brigade tweeted, referring to the boy's older brother. The parents were both safe, said officials.

Mattias was extricated first, emerging seven hours after his baby brother, covered in cement dust in his underwear as he clung to firefighters. Dozens of people are said to have ended their holidays early and Italian media said some tourists were sleeping on benches waiting for boats to arrive.

Finally came Ciro, who rescuers said kept the conversation going throughout the ordeal even though one of his legs was immobilized by the rubble.

Italy's national volcanology institute said the temblor struck a few minutes before 9 p.m., just as many people were having dinner.

"It was a bad night".

The father told RAI state television that the boys were in their bedroom when the quake struck, while he and his wife were elsewhere in the house.

They were expected to be discharged on Wednesday.

"For three kids spared from the rubble, we have seen a genuine supernatural occurrence". It also caused an electrical blackout and the evacuation of a hospital.

At least two people died and more than 20 were injured following an quake on the southern Italian island of Ischia, a popular holiday destination off the coast of Naples.

Residents and tourists on the island ran out on to the streets.

More rescue workers were brought in from the mainland to help in the search for survivors.
