Man killed while fleeing police check in Limassol

One leaped from the bedroom window, second person jumped from the balcony


A tragedy unfolded Wednesday morning, April 10th, when a man was found dead after attempting to flee a police check.

According to authorities, around 06:00, members of the Immigration and Asylum Service (IAS) entered an apartment on the 5th floor of a building in the city center, following coordinated intelligence that undocumented foreigners were residing there.

Upon realizing the presence of the IAS members, two individuals attempted to escape. One leaped from the bedroom window, landing on the balcony of another apartment, and tragically succumbed to his injuries.

Meanwhile, the second person jumped from the balcony, sustaining serious injuries and was rushed to Limassol General Hospital.

Emergency responders quickly arrived at the scene for further assessment.
