Burglar dies after falling from Geneva balcony
A man who had broken into an apartment in Geneva has died after he fell from the apartment’s balcony as he tried to escape.
The man was one of three men who had burgled the apartment in Saint-Jean in the early hours of Friday last week. The men were disturbed by someone living in the apartment and escaped by jumping off a four-metre high balcony.
One of the burglars hit the ground badly. His accomplices took him to a nearby park where they abandoned him as they made their escape. The man was found to be seriously injured and died the next day in hospital in Geneva.
