A man collapsed in the Wupper in Wuppertal on Sunday evening and died. He had probably fallen off the steep bank of the river at the last stop of the suspension track and had suffered serious injuries that he died, said a police spokesman in the morning. Further details about the incident were initially unknown.
According to the fire brigade, a passerby had pulled the man out of the water and offered first aid. Rescuers save the heavily wounded from the rocky terrain. Because of the many spectators in the bank, the area had to be deposited, it was said.
