A 48-year-old man died on Monday after falling from scaffolding while working on the Costa del Sol Theatre in Estepona.
The incident occurred at around 09:30 and two fellow workers had to be treated for anxiety attacks following the accident.
The theatre contract, with a budget of €5.7 million, was awarded to Sando Construcciones. The deceased, however, was an employee of a sub-contractor responsible for metal structures.
The cause of the accident is under investigation.
