A 43-year-old man died after falling from a hotel balcony while on vacation in Italy
According to reconstructions, the man was trapped on the terrace and tried to climb down to the ground. But he fell three meters and died on the spot. The carabinieri and the 118 sanitaries intervened on the spot.
The soldiers collected the testimonies of witnesses, including the victim’s wife, who was in a state of shock, and the staff of the hotel where the couple was staying.
As reconstructed, at one point the two decided to return to the room, but would have realized that the French window had been closed and could not be reopened. They would both try to call for help and contact the lobby, but were unsuccessful.
At that point, therefore, the man perched on a parapet and attempted to descend from that height. A tile on which he was leaning would have given way, causing him to lose his balance and causing him to fall. Death was caused by severe craniocerebral trauma.
