There was a nasty accident during Níjar’s three Kings parade last night, when one of the floats hit a low hanging electric cable, knocking a 20 year old man off the float.
He seems to have gotten entangled in his King costume when the top of his throne hit the electric cable and fell headfirst onto the street below. He was rushed to Almería hospital with a severe head injury.
The rest of the parade was cancelled.
Later: Sadly, the death of the young man was confirmed at midday on the 6th by the local hospital. He never emerged from the coma and passed away a few hours after the accident.
