A tourist of U.S. nationality died Friday while he and his family were making a tourist visit to the New Cathedral in Salamanca, Spain, police officials told Efe.
The incident occurred during the morning when, for reasons not yet known, the 44-year-old man collapsed and hit his head on the floor.
Police said the man fainted and fell down from “natural causes.”
The death took place in a narrow passage in the cathedral towers, such a tight spot that Salamanca firefighters and emergency management services had to take part in recovering the body.
