A 24 year old resident of Santa Pola was killed on Monday whilst working on a property in Arenales del Sol.

The man was reported to have been working on a television aerial on the roof of a six-storey building on calle Ibiza at the time of the incident which occurred around midday.

Both the local and National Police attended the scene and an investigation will be carried out once an autopsy confirms the cause of death, although the initial hypothesis is that he died of a heart attack and fell from his ladder.
