A British teenager has reportedly died after falling from a building’s seventh floor while on a school exchange trip in southern Spain.
The 15-year-old fell through an open window in an apartment building in Cordoba on Saturday night, according to local media.
The teenager was fixing a window blind in a bedroom when he fell, according to ABC de Cordoba.
Paramedics and police officers attended the scene, on a street named Periodista Quesada Chacon, after being called at 10.25pm (BST).
The emergency services were unable to save the schoolboy, Diario Cordoba reported.
Inmaculada Troncoso, a local education official, said authorities were immediately told of the death.
“We deeply regret that this has happened,” she said in a statement.
She added that they were “offering support to the school and the boy’s family.”
Authorities believe the fall was accidental.
A spokesperson for Britain’s Foreign and Commonwealth Office said: “We are supporting the family of a British child who died following an incident in Cordoba in Spain.”
