A 76-year-old man resident of Vjal Simmons, Tarxien, has sadly lost his life after falling off the roof of his home today.
The police revealed in a statement that the man fell a height of around one storey onto another roof at around 1245pm. However, the roof he fell on, which belonged to the adjacent property, gave way, leading to the man to fall one further storey.
It was revealed that Civil Protection Department officers pulled the man out of the rubble and transported him to Mater Dei. Unfortunately, he was pronounced dead shortly afterwards.
Police investigations as well as a magisterial inquiry are ongoing.
