A 30-year-old Israeli-Arab worker died on Tuesday after falling from a construction site near the Teddy Stadium in Jerusalem.

The man was working at the new Basketball Arena next to the stadium, which is set to be completed in November 2013.

Magen David Adom paramedics and the special firefighters rescue unit who rushed to the construction site tried to carry out CPR, but the man was pronounced dead at the scene. 

Firefighters believe the man somehow fell from the fourth floor to the second floor, but the reasons are still unclear and the incident is under investigation.
