Emergency crews try to remove the body of the man found dead inside the Santa Paloma dinosaur

BarcelonaA father and son who were playing in the old cinema City of Santa Coloma de Gramenet, in the Cubics building, gave the warning on Saturday: inside the decorative dinosaur there was a body. It is a 39-year-old man whose family was looking for and that, according to SER Catalunya, was trying to retrieve the mobile phone that had fallen on a leg of the dinosaur when he fell upside down and could not get out.

Firefighters had to saw off part of the dinosaur to remove the body, which according to initial findings showed no signs of criminality. The Mossos d'Esquadra have taken charge of the investigation and are awaiting the results of the autopsy to determine the causes of death and find out how the man could enter inside the decorative figure, which is outside the old cinemas, near the Avinguda de Francesc Macià and the B-20.
