Benidorm Hotel Worker Falls To His Death


A 64-year-old maintenance worker that was carrying out repair tasks at a hotel in Benidorm died after falling 15-metres in an accident

During his work shift, while carrying out repair work at the hotel, the worker fell to his death from a height of approximately 15 meters. The incident took place on Thursday at 1:20 pm and was immediately reported to emergency services. A unit of the Urgent Medical Care Service (SAMU) arrived at the scene (below).

The Center for Information and Coordination of Emergencies (CICU) confirmed the fall, and a unit from the Urgent Medical Attention Service (SAMU) was dispatched to the hotel. However, the medical team could only confirm the worker’s death at the scene.

This tragic event occurred just 48 hours before the city receives the first great flood of tourists of the year for Holy Week. Some dates on which the hotel businesses of the tourist capital of the Valencian Community and one of the most demanded destinations on the entire Mediterranean coast expect to reach 90% occupancy.

Most establishments are already classified as technically full leading up to Holy Week.

Benidorm’s beaches are ready for Easter, the first major holiday event of the year and which, starting this weekend, will bring hundreds of thousands of tourists to the city.

This was verified by the mayor, Toni Pérez, and the councillor for Beaches, Mónica Gómez, who indicated that “as usual, during the next two weeks the rescue, first aid and cleaning services will be reinforced to size them to the occupation that our sandbanks will present on the occasion of Holy Week”.
