The body of a 62-year-old man who fell down a well in his house in St Lucy’s Street, Naxxar earlier today was reportedly found by his wife as she returned home from a chore.
While Spiru Bartolo’s exact cause of death has not yet been officially established, preliminary police investigations suggest it was an accident.
Some of the man’s neighbours told ONE NEWS that Bartolo was trying to fix the water pump as it could have been tripping the house’s circuit breaker. His wife found his body at the bottom of the well at around 2pm after she arrived home with their granchildren, who she had picked up from school.
