Officials investigate fatal construction incident

Severe head trauma cause of death for foreign worker who fell from a height in Paralimni


A forensic pathologist confirmed Tuesday that a foreign worker who died over the weekend, several days following a work incident in Paralimni, had suffered a severe head trauma caused falling from a height.

According to police, 32-year-old Borislav Yankov Shumanski was working as a painter at a residential construction site in Paralimni on January 5, when he was injured after falling from a height.

Shumanski, described as a Bulgarian national, was rushed to the Emergency Room at Famagusta General Hospital, where doctors determined he suffered a serious head trauma and internal bleeding.

Police told Knews the incident was being investigated by the Labour office as a work-related accident

He was then transferred to Nicosia General, where he underwent surgery. Local media said Shumanski was being treated in very critical condition when he succumbed to his injuries on Saturday night.

State forensic pathologist Sofocles Sofocleous confirmed Tuesday that the cause of death was “severe craniocerebral trauma that can be caused by fall from height.”

Police told Knews the incident was being investigated by the Labour office as a work-related accident. Specific details about the site or circumstances surrounding the fall have not been made available.
