A LANDSLIDE trapped and killed a labourer working on laying pipes in Velez-Blanco on Friday, the Andalucia regional government’s 112 emergency service reported.
The call came through in the early evening that a worker was trapped in a ditch on the Balsa de Lara lane.
Guardia Civil, the Levante firefighting service, Local Police and Velez-Blanco Civil Protection rushed to the scene, while an EPES health emergencies team flew in by helicopter.
Sadly, the emergencies team could only confirm the death of the 51-year old.
Firefighters rescued the body from the ditch.
