Pompeii officials on Tuesday released a photograph showing the skeleton protruding from beneath a large block of stone that may have been a door jamb which had been "violently thrown by the volcanic cloud".
The victim, who was estimated to be over 30, had his thorax crushed. Archeologists have not found the victim's head. Officials said the man had suffered from a leg infection that may have caused walking difficulties and thus impeded his escape, theguardian.com wrote.
The archeological site's general director, Massimo Osanna, called it "an exceptional find" that contributes to a better "picture of the history and civilization of the age".
