After receiving an alert about the accident, local emergency services confirmed that they had “activated an immediate emergency response and sent an ambulance to the scene with trained paramedics.” However the severity of the man´s injuries resulted in his death shortly after their arrival. 

A local police spokesperson said that no other person was present in the holiday apartment when the accident occurred.

The Foreign Office released a statement to say they were “providing support to the family of a British national.” 

It is expected that the cause of death will be established by an autopsy.
