A man was killed Tuesday morning after a wall collapsed on him while he was doing renovation work at a building in Netanya.

The accident on HaRav Kook street took the life of a 57-year-old local man, who was pronounced dead at the scene.

Magen David Adom paramedic Rafi Sheva said that the man was found trapped underneath the rubble of an interior wall and that when they and firefighters managed to pull him out he was unconscious, with no pulse and not breathing.

Sheva said the man’s injuries were simply too severe, and they had no choice but to rule him dead.
