Man dies trying to climb down to apartment balcony from roof

Limassol hospital

A Romanian man fell from a roof and was killed in front of his wife and his sister in Limassol in the early hours of Sunday  while trying to get to his apartment balcony after forgetting his keys.

The 44-year-old had been able to enter the building around 1am and went onto the roof in an attempt to climb down to his third-floor balcony using some cable wire as a rope.

However he  fell when the cable broke.

The man was taken to Limassol hospital where doctors confirmed his death.

Police are investigating the exact way in which the accident occurred.

It emerged later on Sunday that the man, who was with his wife and 18-month-old child at the time,  had called his sister to go there as she had a spare key to the apartment but he decided in the meantime to try and get into the apartment through the roof.

They witnessed his fall to his death.
