A man from Larnaca suffered serious head injuries on Sunday after plummeting to the ground whilst loading boxes from a forklift.
Larnaca police have described the victim as being a 39-year-old Bulgarian national who had been loading plastic boxes of fruit at a factory in Aradippou when the accident occurred.
According to witnesses, at some point the man lost his balance and fell some two metres to the ground – suffering a serious head injury.
He was rushed to Larnaca General Hospital where he currently remains. He will be reassessed by doctors later on Monday.
Labour Department inspectors and police are currently looking into the incident.
