A construction worker has died after falling from scaffolding at the Newport Bay Club Hotel in Disneyland Paris.
The tragic accident happened yesterday (9 September 2015) at around 3 PM. The man who was 44 years-old and lived in Paris was an employee of construction company Peixoto Leite Family which is based in the Val-d’Oise. He died after a scaffold railing gave way and he fell from a height of twelve meters while working on the façade of the hotel.
Rescuers tried to revive him but sadly he died 40 minutes after his fall at the scene of the accident.
Renovations began at the largest hotel in Disneyland Paris, the 1,000 bedroom Newport Bay Club Hotel in 2013 and is being undertaken by a number of subcontracted companies.
