VALÈNCIA, 12 Mar.

Tragedy struck at the Palau de les Arts Reina Sofía in València as a worker lost his life after falling from about 20 meters high from the roof, as confirmed by health and police sources to Europa Press.

The workplace accident occurred on March 4th, around 10:45 am, when the worker fell from about 20 meters high while performing maintenance and restoration tasks on the waterfall of the public building, belonging to the Ciutat de les Arts i les Ciències, sources from the police headquarters have specified.

After the fall, the man was taken to the Hospital Universitari La Fe in València, where he sadly passed away, and the National Police initiated an investigation.

Apparently, according to initial investigations, all safety measures were being followed but due to some movement, two ropes holding the worker snapped, causing the accident, as stated by police sources.

As reported by Levante-EMV on Tuesday, the deceased man was 47 years old and specialized in high-altitude safety. At the time of the accident, he was with another colleague who was positioned above.
