A construction painter was killed in an accident over the weekend in Larnaca, after he fell from the third floor of a building while working.
According to media reports, 60-year-old Anastasios Thoma was working at a construction site in Larnaca near the state hospital on Saturday evening, around 7pm.
The Greek Cypriot worker was reportedly some nine metres above the ground on an apartment building under construction when he lost his balance and fell under circumstances that remain under investigation.
Thoma was rushed to the Emergency Room at Larnaca General Hospital where doctors pronounced him dead on arrival.
Officials from the labour inspection office in cooperation with the Larnaca police misdemeanours department were said to be investigating the incident.
