The 17-year-old boy who fell from the tenth floor on Avenida de los Reyes Católicos in Burgos continues in a very serious condition in the ICU of the city's University Hospital, despite the fact that his death was reported this morning.
At a press conference, the Government delegate in Castilla y León, Virginia Barcones, has made this precision about the situation of the minor after the information provided this Wednesday by hospital sources. The Junta de Castilla y León has also confirmed that the adolescent is in the ICU.
The delegate has also reported that the first indications from the National Police indicate that the event could be due to a suicide attempt, although it will also be investigated whether it could have been an accident.
According to Barcones, the first data available to the agents rules out that there was bullying or a similar situation. "Everything seems to indicate an autolytic attempt and it does not seem like harassment or bullying," the delegate summarized.
The emergency services received a call alerting them to what had happened at around 7:30 p.m. and sent the Burgos Fire Brigade to the scene with a ladder truck, three ambulances, the National Police and two Local Police units.
Apparently, the young man, who fell through a narrow patio of the building, was able to save his life when he collided with various elements in his fall that stopped him before falling to a roof in the lower area of the building, according to police sources.
When the firefighters managed to rescue the young man with a ladder vehicle, an ambulance took him to the Burgos University Hospital, where he was admitted with a reserved prognosis and in whose ICU he remains.
