A 47-year-old man got killed on Saturday, in an accident at work at the Arinaga Industrial Estate, in a warehouse on Calle Las Mimosas, when a large door fell on him.

The Coordination Centre for Emergencies (CECOES), received an emergency call at approximately 10am and two ambulances, one for basic support and the other medicalized from the SUC, raced to the site, but were unfortunately able to do anything to save the man's life.
According to sources, the victim is a 47-year-old delivery driver and is a native of Telde.

Guardia Civil officers from Agüimes arrived at the scene, certifying the death of the man, and ruled out any indication of criminality, as it appears to be a tragic workplace accident.

The agents opened proceedings to investigate the cause of death.
