Paramedics pronounced a 36 Year Old British Man as deceased in the early hours of Wednesday 14th of August.
Their report stated that he had sustained ‘injuries incompatible with life’, the term used when emergency services attend a scene where there is clearly no purpose in any treatment being administered.
The man had fallen* from the roof of a residential apartment block on Vara de Rey at number 11, which is the town end of the road that runs from the West End to the Sunset Strip.
The man is identified in the Spanish press by initials CJN. The emergency services report states that CJN lived in the apartment with one other person, described as his ‘compañero’*.
In the 061 situation report it is stated that there was an altercation between CJN and the other occupant of the apartment. An argument became physical and the other person is said to have sustained head injuries.
After the altercation it is said that CJN went to the roof of the 7 storey building, and from there plunged to his death into the inner courtyard.
The alarm was raised at 2.05 a.m. and a specialist mobile UVI ambulance team attended alongside officers from the Guardia Civil and Local Police.
The Judicial Police of the Civil Guard investigates the causes of the event.
*Important note to translation. The 061 emergency services report uses terminology for the fall itself that I would normally associate with ‘jumped’, as in a decision to do so, not an accident. The term compañero in context would most likely be a person in a relationship. However both terms can be used differently, and so we cannot give definitive explanations.
