A man of about 40 died this evening following a fall to the river in Machico. Apparently, the victim was sitting on the wall, when he lost his balance and fell into the bed of the stream next to the primary school.

The alert was given at 7:45 pm, with the Municipal Firemen of Machico sent to the scene an ambulance and a ladder, but there was little else to do, than to recover the body.
