A 59-year-old man died of his injuries on Sunday after falling off the roof of a house on Levylaan earlier in the afternoon.

At around 16:45, the man was busy cleaning his dormer window when the accident occurred. A beam he had placed on the roof slid away, after which the man fell six meters. The 59-year-old victim landed on his head and sustained a serious head injury.

Two ambulances, police officers, and the fire brigade were on the scene. A trauma helicopter was also called. An attempt was made to resuscitate the man on site, after which he was brought to a hospital in Tilburg under the supervision of a trauma doctor.

The man later succumbed to his injuries.
