Man dies after car plunges down hillside (Updated)

The death of Limassol resident Costas Petros Garposis, 71, whose car fell from a great height down a hillside in the Limassol region on Sunday afternoon, has been attributed to a heart attack.

The cause of death was revealed during a postmortem carried out by state pathologist Nicholas Charalambous on Monday.

Garposis was driving on the road from Limassol to Platres with his 84-year-old wife as a passenger, when he lost control of the vehicle near Lania and the car fell down a 30-metre deep cliff.

The two occupants of the car were freed from the car by the fire service and taken to Limassol general hospital by ambulance where the husband was pronounced dead.

His wife was diagnosed with a fractured sternum and underwent surgery.

The accident follows six deaths on the road in the previous ten days.
